PELICAN RIVER WATERSHED DISTRICT Notice is hereby given the Pelican River Watershed District is conducting an aquatic invasive species control project involving mechanical harvesting of Curly-leaf pondweed infestation on Big Detroit lake. Mechanical harvesting is restricted to areas infested with Curly-leaf pondweed and conducted between June 18 and July 12, 2014. Please refer to the District's website: www.prwd.org or District office at 211 Holmes Street West, Wells-Fargo Bank Bldg, Suite 201, Detroit Lakes, MN to review Curly-leaf pondweed area map. Signatures for lake-wide control of aquatic invasive species are not required for the Pelican River Watershed District Curly-leaf pondweed control project as the MN DNR has waived the signature requirement as allowed by state statute. The law requires notification to lakeshore owners on how to opt out of treatments. According to Minnesota Statutes (103G.615, Sec. 78, Subd 3a,b,c), the District is required to notify landowners of proposed treatments, offering them an opportunity to request that mechanical harvesting not occur on waters adjacent to their property. (Adjacency is defined as waters within 150 feet of the shore lake-ward between property lines. It is the landowner's right to request mechanical harvesting not be done in front of their property, however it should be noted this project aims to reduce Curly-leaf pondweed aquatic invasive species populations which interfere with navigation, impair recreational activities, and cause harm to native plant populations. Landowner's may exercise this right by immediately notifying the District in writing of their wish to "opt-out" of proposed mechanical harvesting areas for 2014 prior to the start of such action. Address such a communication as follows: Tera Guetter, Administrator Pelican River Watershed District 211 Holmes Street West Wells-Fargo Building, Suite 201 Detroit Lakes, MN 56501 Tera.Guetter@arvig.net R-June 15………………………….............................................................1942788
