Todd County AIS Program
The 2014 Legislative Session enacted Law Chapter 308 to provide Minnesota counties a County Program Aid grant for Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) prevention. The amount designated to each county was based on the number of watercraft trailer launches as well as the number of watercraft trailer parking spaces within each county.
County efforts will be in addition to existing work being supported and delivered by MN DNR. It is the hope of the legislature that together the county plus MN DNR can slow the spread of aquatic invasive species and their negative impacts to our lakes.
