Government Shut-Down Leads to Weed Infested Waters
Due to a government shut-down, many Minnesota Lakes are becoming infested with weeds resulting in the inability to use the waters for recreation. Permits to harvest invasive weeds, which are issued by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, have been suspended because no one from the state is available to oversee the work. Normally, three weed harvesters would be cutting milfoil on Lake Minnetonka and another would be cutting weeds on Lake Calhoun. All of which has been suspended.

A letter to permit holders signed by Steve Hirsch, director of DNR’s division of ecological and water resources, says all “aquatic plant management” permits are suspended to protect public interest and state natural resources. He wrote, no weed harvesting or chemical control can be done until state offices have reopened for business.
