Email

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) invasive species and fisheries staff, along with two divers, removed Eurasian watermilfoil from a newly discovered patch in Lake Le Homme Dieu near Alexandria in Douglas County on June 29.

Last week an angler discovered the 20- by 20-foot patch of Eurasian watermilfoil growing in the middle of the lake between the Krueger's Creek and Rotary Beach public accesses. The discovery was verified by a DNR staff aquatic plant biologist.
