Federal Funding to Battle Invasive Species
Federal funding received through competitive grants under the Obama administrations’ Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is paying for additional Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources staff to coordinate and conduct monitoring at hundreds of Wisconsin lake public boat landings. The DNR is in search or new or never-been-reported populations of zebra mussels, Eurasian water milfoil, and other aquatic invasive species.

The monitoring is part of efforts to help stop the spread of invaders by alerting lake managers to invasions when they are still new and may be possible to contain or control. Three-quarters of Wisconsin lakes with public access are free of Eurasian water milfoil and zebra mussels, but if something is found the local lake community can be informed so they can step up efforts to keep the invasive species from spreading to neighboring lakes and rivers.

Over the next five years the DNR hopes to sample 200 lakes each year.
