It's lurking under the water, and sinking the property values at Smith Mountain and Claytor Lakes.

Friends of Claytor Lake are trying to call attention to Hydrilla.

It's a plant that's grown so dense, some residents can't get their boats out of their dock or swim near their property.

And they're worried tourism is going to be a problem.

Several groups are working to address the problem.

Homeowners and visitors agree the sooner the better.
