Aquatic Invasive Species: Panel
Six panel members from Wisconsin DNR, consulting firms, local educators and a licensed chemical applicator provided an informative discussion on aquatic invasive species. Lake associations from Chetec/Birch Lakes, Red Cedar Lake, Rice Lake and Tainter/Menomin were in attendance to hear about approaches to treating invasive plant species by mechanical and chemical treatments. The success story of Half Moon Lake in Eau Claire, WI was featured. Tainter Menomin Lake Improvement Association and the Dunn County Board of Supervisors were mentioned several times in the discussion and praised for their recent action on the shoreland ordinance and other initiatives. Extensive discussion ensued about the need for more systematic efforts among agencies and lake associations along the Red Cedar River basin to address water quality issues.
