Aquatic Invasives Grant
Aquatic Invasives Early Detection and Response
EWM was first observed in Winslow Lake in 2012. It was later determined, through genetic testing, to be HWM. The WDNR completed a PI survey in 2014 and confirmed its presence within the lake. In early 2015, the Winslow Shores Property Owners Association partnered with the Town of Riverview to apply for an AIS Early Detection and Response grant. With the help of Onterra, LLC, they were able to secure funding for 2015-2017 to monitor and control HWM within Winslow Lake. The goals of the project include determining the extent of the HWM population in the lake and creating a control strategy.
