Shamineau Lake Property Owners Look to Create a Lake Improvement District
The association consisting of Shamineau Lake property owners is discussing the creation of a lake improvement district (LID). This LID would, through Morrison County, collect funds to combat Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive species discovered in the lake several years ago.

“We got a grant in 2012 to eradicate the AIS,” said Bob Koll, property owner on Shamineau Lake and in charge of water control. “The watermilfoil was less than an acre then.”

Divers were hired to pull out the AIS that summer.

“We thought we got it all,” said Randy Heltemes, the president of the Shamineau Lake Association. But, it reappeared in a different area the following year.

In 2013, divers again pulled out the AIS after finding it in a different location. It was then that the association decided to create the LID.

The cost to remove the milfoil by pulling the 200 pounds out in 2012 was $1,630. In 2013, divers pulled out another 300 pounds which cost $1,617. In 2014, 1,050 pounds were removed from Shamineau at a cost of $2,600.

The survey of the lake, done this past summer, also indicated that a possible hybrid milfoil plant was located, along with purple loosestrife.

Invasive Plants Get Approval to Be Grown as Biofuel Crop - If the hottest new plant grown as a biofuel crop is approved based solely on its greenhouse gas emission profile, its potential as the next invasive species may not be discovered until it’s too late.
