Residents urged to use DNR Permitted Service Providers

As residents prepare for the open water season, the  Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) encourage those that will be hiring lake service providers to utilize providers that are lawfully permitted by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MN DNR).  The MN DNR’s mandatory training program was enacted by the State of Minnesota in 2011 to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS).  It applies to all hired providers that install or remove water-related equipment (boats, docks, boat lifts, or other structures) from Minnesota bodies of water.  Please continue reading about this very important matter by selecting this press release.
