Invasive weeds


The idea of removing invasive weeds from Norton’s bodies of water will be discussed among the Board of Selectmen, the Conservation Commission, and the Water Bodies Committee at the selectmen’s meeting on July 11. The Norton Reservoir, Chartley Pond, and Barrowsville Pond have seen some invasive weeds, but the problem is of particular concern at Winnecunnet Pond, according to town Manager Michael Yunits. He said officials at the meeting will discuss a “request for qualifications” the town is looking to issue for firms interested in helping Norton develop a plan for removing the plants. They will also discuss the potential costs involved and a possible funding request for the work to put before Town Meeting in October.
