Beneficial Aquatic Weeds in Lake Greenwood
The squishy green stuff at the bottom of the lake isn't algae. Those are weeds, and though people seem to hate the feeling of their feet touching them, those weeds might be necessary for the health of the lake.

According to Greenwood County Lake Manager Julie Davis, Greenwood County Lake Management surveys and inspects the invasive plant species yearly. The surveys and inspections include identifying and eliminating aquatic plant species that disrupt the natural ecosystem, impair use of areas and affect native beneficial plants.

Though most people don't like weeds touching their feet or getting stuck in their boat propellers, some of the weeds in Lake Greenwood are important in maintaining a healthy habitat.

Greenwood County Lake Management tries to maintain native plant species as they eliminate invasive, noxious plants. Native plants, according to SCDNR information, are great fish and bird food and help to properly oxygenate the water.
