As property owners, there is a growing need for AIS (aquatic invasive species) awareness. The following is from Jeff Mosner from the Hubbard County Coalition of Lake Associations. Please take the time to review the recent survey results. The analysis of the 2022 Eyes on the Water Survey has now been completed. There are 4 summary reports available that can be found at http://hubbardcolamn.org
Within these reports you can find summarized statistics from the survey, including where on your lake (which sides) have "eyes". Also there is a report that shows which lakes have tested for zebra mussel veligers and spiney water fleas over the past 10 years. Another report summarizes survey responses over the past 5 years.
According to our Hubbard County AIS Program Coordinator there were no new AIS confirmations in 2022 (Woohoo!) however new infestations were noted in the following neighboring counties: Beltrami, Cass and Wadena.
And while watercraft inspections represent a huge "boots on the ground" effort to control the spread of AIS, YOUR "eyes on the water", representing early detection, has proven to be an effective way of stemming the subsequent spread of AIS to other lakes.
So, on behalf of the Hubbard County Coalition of Lake Associations, thank you for your continuing efforts to preserve our pristine lakes.
