Watercraft Access Inspections Administered by Local Government Units

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Invasive Species Program is offering grant funds to assist Tribal and local government units (LGUs) that are interested in implementing an aquatic invasives species (AIS) prevention program using authorized watercraft inspectors to work at water accesses in their area.  The DNR will also provide training to watercraft inspectors that are part of the the LGU's watercraft inspection program.  These grants are intended to help prevent and curb the spread of aquatic invasive species, especially zebra mussels into Minnesota waters.  Watercraft inspectors funded with these grants must be employees of the LGU or individuals working for a contractor to the LGU.

Program Objectives

The goal of this program is to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species, especially zebra mussels and spiny waterfleas into Minnesota waters.
