Little Muskego Lake Looks at Installing a Boat Rinse Station
With the surprisingly strong support surfacing for a facility enabling boaters to rinse lake pests such as zebra mussels and invasive weeds off the hulls of their boats, Muskego officials will look into providing a rinse station at Little Muskego Lake.

The strong support for a rinse station was welcome news for the Little Muskego Lake Association which has favored providing at least a hose so that hulls can be washed off and the lakes can be better protected. Invasive pests, both animal and plant, spread from lake to lake as they are carried on the hulls of boats, said Lisa Niles, association vice president who is spearheading the association's efforts to get a station.

If installed, Little Muskego Lake would be one of the first lakes in southeastern Wisconsin to have a boat rinse station.

Although Little Muskego Lake already has zebra mussels and some other invasive weeds, a rinse station could head off invasion by a completely new lake-destroying pests.

Maryland Falls Victim to Harmful Invasive Species - Invasive species are problematic because they can aggressively establish themselves very quickly after introduction, and often end up in direct competition with native species. Because of this, invasive species can quickly and dramatically alter natural habitats and displace native flora and fauna species. In the U.S. alone, 45 percent of species that are listed as rare, threatened or endangered are designated into this category in part due to invasive species.
