WUNC-TV/NPR interviews Dr. Rob Richardson, an aquatic weed researcher in the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences at NC State University, about the infestation of the invasive exotic weed, Hydrilla, in the popular scenic Eno River in Durham, NC.
The River is part of the local water supply; and the weed affects not only water quality but the ecology of the river and its plants and animals, such as fish, herons, and turtles. It also interfers with popular recreational activities, such as paddling and fishing.
