Lake Inspectors Work To Keep Invasives Out
A pair of area lake associations will have a little more money to wage the battle to keep invasive aquatic species out of their waters.
The MN DNR has awarded the The Crow Wing County Land Services Department with the Whitefish Area Property Owners Association and Pelican Lakes Association a $7,750 Watercraft Inspection Grant.
The money will be used to post inspectors at public landings to look for Eurasian Water Milfoil, Curly Leaf Pondweed, Spiny Water Fleas and Zebra Mussels.
Last summer inspectors intercepted a boat carrying the unwanted milfoil before it got into Lower Hay Lake.
