As you may recall, we have been requesting that our lake association members complete a survey about AIS treatments on their lake. We have had over 130 responses and already received some staggering data.

  • More than 70% of the lakes that responded are treating for AIS.
  • A total of $2.1 million was spent in 2018 by these lakes.
  • On average each lake spent over $22,000 on AIS treatment last year.

Thank you to all the lakes that have participated so far! The list can be seen here: https://mymlsa.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/AIS-Survey-Lake-Honor-Roll-THANK-YOU.xlsx-10_10_19-1.pdf
