According to multiple reports, the Tennessee Valley Authority will resume their extensive weed control efforts on Lake Guntersville this summer, just a few short months after it played host to the 2014 Bassmaster Classic. This is a long-term plan that will be in effect for six consecutive years.
The world renowned bass fishery is famous for its thick vegetation and giant largemouth bass, but recreationalists and homeowners believe the grass to be a nuisance.
The treatment will cost up to $1 million per year and the TVA will front the cost for the first three years. In 2019, it seems the new state board will take over and become financially responsible.
