Minnesota Invasive Species Reporting Procedures
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Invasive Species Program recently made several confirmations of new aquatic invasive species infestation in lakes around the state. The DNR urges people who think they may have discovered an aquatic invasive species to the DNR immediately or bring it to a local office for verification.

Christine Herwig, invasive species specialist in Park Rapids says that “if people have a true concern about something they’ve found that might be an AIS, we want to check it out immediately. We will respond quickly.”

Think you’ve made a discovery?

1.  Place the specimen in a bag or other container to keep it intact; if the specimen is an animal (e.g., snail, zebra mussel, spiny water flea), pour rubbing alcohol on it to preserve the animal.

2.  Take a photo of the suspected invasive species

3.  Mark on a lake map or GPS the exact location where the specimen was found.

4.  Contact the local DNR immediately to arrange transport.

5.  Email a photo and the location to a DNR office.

Paper Mills Likely Major Source of Chemical Pollution in Waterways - Environmentalists worry that FDA records show that pollution in water from paper mills is unchecked. An analysis done by the EDF noted nine rivers flowing through 17 states were likely to contain more than the maximum content level of PFAS stipulated in EPA's health advisory. However, the group said it was not made public which plants are using these chemicals and into which waterways the chemical is being discharged.
