The Department of Natural Resources says invasive species were reported in two Kandiyohi County lakes last month. In mid-July, the DNR confirmed that there was Eurasian watermilfoil in Games Lake, about 7 miles east of Sunburg, Minn. That confirmation came after a lakeshore owner reported the infestation to authorities.
The DNR announced Thursday that Eurasian watermilfoil is growing in McCormack Lake in St. Louis County.
As boating season commences, the DNR wants to remind all “weekend captains” to do their part in preventing our lakes and rivers from being overrun by invasive species of plants and other aquatic life.
With the fishing season opener coming up Saturday, Minnesota is urging boaters to ‘pull the plug’ on aquatic invasive species.
