DNR sued over battle against invasive species

| No Comments

Three west-metro lake associations filed a lawsuit against the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for not doing their duty to protect Minnesota Lakes from invasive species, the Alexandria Echo reported.
The fight against zebra mussels and other invasive species has been going on in Minnesota for over 20 years and the associations claim the DNR has not come up with a suitable plan for the future, the Star Tribune reported.
They also claim that DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr "has not established a statewide program to prevent and curb the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) as Minnesota statutes require," the Alexandria Echo.
The DNR raised funding by $3.8 million since last year and feel they are doing their duty, the Star Tribune reported.
