Hydrilla In the Reservoir

Swift Creek Reservoir is a manmade impoundment for drinking water, developed in the mid-1960’s by the Chesterfield County, Virginia Utilities. Hydrilla, a non-native invasive aquatic weed, invaded the reservoir prior to 2010, and by 2010 had covered approximately 50% of the 1700-acre reservoir. Hydrilla is the predominant aquatic vegetation in the reservoir. Sterile carp were selected as the hydrilla management method. Information about hydrilla and its management is included below.
