Grass carp have been an effective solution in dealing with invasive weeds, according to a representative of a lake community in Virginia that has battled non-native plants for several years.

Jeff Caldwell represents Friends of Claytor Lake, a nonprofit organization representing about 2,100 homeowners and others living and working around Claytor Lake in Virginia.

Caldwell spoke at a meeting — held in the offices of The Roane Alliance — of a stakeholders group that is being formed to address the weed issue on Watts Bar Lake.

The meeting was set up by Mark Musolf, a Watts Bar Lake property owner with experience in organizing community advocacy groups.

In attendance were representatives from Roane, Rhea and Meigs counties, as well as lake property owners and sportsmen.
