"B. The amounts for this item include $200,000 in the first year and $200,000 in the second year from the general fund to continue to support the treatment and control of hydrilla on Lake Gaston."

(This amendment provides $200,000 each year from the general fund to address hydrilla contamination, an excessive growth, in Lake Gaston located in the Counties of Brunswick and Mecklenburg. The wide spreads of the hydrilla growth have affected tourism and recreation, especially water sports, fishing, and boating, in Southside Virginia's most prestigious lakes. Local governments are contributing; however, more treatments are required due to the steady growth over the last six years.)
