DNR finds milfoil in eleven new lakes
Lake Winona added to list
(09/13/2006)
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has confirmed the discovery of Eurasian watermilfoil in 11 new lakes, all but one of which are within 50 miles of the Twin Cities.

Eurasian watermilfoil, or simply milfoil, is now in 188 bodies of water in the state since it was discovered in the late 1980s. The majority of infested water bodies are in central and north-central Minnesota, according to Chip Welling, DNR Eurasian Watermilfoil Program coordinator.

It is unlawful in Minnesota to transport aquatic plants or prohibited invasive species on public roads or to launch watercraft with them attached.

The following lakes have been added to the list of Minnesota waters infested with invasive species: Lake Winona, Winona County; Maria or Little Mary and Emma lakes, Wright County; Fish Lake, Chisago County; Clear, Mud and Bone lakes, Washington County.

The full list of infested waters is available on the DNR Web site at www.dnr.state.mn.us. The DNR urges boaters to continue to take precautions to avoid spreading the plant.
