Plan To Fight Hydrilla On Lake Gaston Continues To Move Forward

Posted July 23, 2004 10:45 a.m. EDT

— The plan to fight a nuisance weed on Lake Gaston is gaining momentum.

Warren County commissioners moved forward Friday on a draft for a new service-tax district. It would help pay for chemicals to fight Hydrilla.

Northampton already passed a service tax. But commissioners will not fund it until all five counties surrounding the lake come on board.

Warren County has not set a public-hearing date yet.
