Minnesota Aquatic Plant Control May Require Permit

The temperature is rising and everything is growing, even the aquatic plants. That is why the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources wants to remind lakeshore property owners that the removal of aquatic plants from Minnesota lakes requires a permit.

Aquatic plants serve many important functions in lakes; they prevent shoreline erosion, stabilize bottom sediments, provide habitat for fish and wildlife, and tie up nutrients that might otherwise grow algae. The removal of too many aquatic plants can impair their ability to perform these important functions.

Lakeshore property owners can control a modest area of aquatic plants for swimming or boat docking without a permit. Cutting, pulling, racking or harvesting submersed vegetation, like pondweeds, watermilfoil or coontail in an area for recreation is allowed if the area is less than 2,500 square feet.

Mother Nature Spreading Aquatic Invasive Species - Humans are the biggest culprit when it comes to spreading aquatic invasive species, but Mother Nature is also impacting that spread. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers annual budget for controlling invasive aquatic plants has grown from $124 million in 2008 to $135 million in 2012.
