Waterville Lakes AIS Monitoring Program
What is AIS Monitoring?
Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) are one of the newer threats to Minnesota lakes. Residents spend several million dollars each year trying to control AIS, and these costs are increasing every year. For most species, early detection means earlier control which equates to reduced control costs. Each year that many of the AIS are left unchecked, they may continue to spread and get a stronger hold on the lake. This could make control more difficult and expensive.
We are looking for volunteers to monitor for new outbreaks of aquatic weeds. This is a very small time commitment and training will be available.
