In recent years, as the watershed district focused on creating a plan to restore the subwatershed connected by Six Mile Creek, it enlisted University of Minnesota researchers to see how deep its carp problem went.

In May, the watershed district received a state grant of $567,000 for a three-year plan to remove carp, an invasive species that stirs up lake beds, uproots plants and encourages algae growth.

The project, which begins this summer, is part of the Six Mile Creek-Halsted Bay Habitat Restoration, a 10-year, multiorganization effort to make 2,488 acres of the subwatershed more hospitable for wildlife and people as development in the area grows.
