Aquatic Invasive Species Newsletter – November 2017

Changes are afoot!  Literally in some areas!  In the November AIS newsletter, Little Muskego Lake is experiencing a drawdown in an attempt to rid or reduce the Starry Stonewort population in the lake.  Also, with the warm weather still hanging around, boaters are still active on area lakes.  Please make sure you are continuing to clean your boat and trailer while exiting and before entering different lakes.  Additional information can be found through the Clean Boats, Clean Waters grant program.  Please take some time to learn about AIS near you by visiting the recently merged Washington County/ Waukesha County AIS newsletter articles available to you through the Waukesha County AIS webpage at www.waukeshacounty.gov/AIS.
