Wisconsin’s Efforts and Successes in Addressing AIS
Two online reports document progress made in 2011-12 in preventing the introduction and spread of invasive species in Wisconsin lakes, rivers, forests and wetlands. Invasive species such as the emerald ash borer, Eurasian watermilfoil and garlic mustard cost billions of dollars annually across the nation and threaten business sectors such as agriculture, tourism and forestry.

Local prevention and control grants have allowed to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to help local groups address AIS in their waterways. Successful programs include a Landing Blitz, concentrated push to inspect boats to prevent the spread aquatic invasive species as well as well a project that organizes hundreds of citizens to raise and release Galerucella beetles to control purple loosestrife.

Algae Bloom Warnings are Overblown - The New York Department of Environmental Conservation issued a toxic algae bloom warning for Black Lake, located in the northern part of New York. Blue-green algae blooms produce toxic microcystis, a chemical with potentially deadly consequences for animals and people who ingest it. Water samples taken from bloom areas were 20 times higher than the recreational contact suggested limit, causing the DEC to issue the warning.
