Board reviewing proposed plans for 2019 AIS inspection program

The Wright Regional Inspection Program was created as a pilot project in 2018 to combat the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species in select Wright County lakes. On Feb. 26, the Wright Soil & Water Conservation District submitted a revised plan for 2019 which would require an amendment to the County’s stated and revised code, Section 131.07. The Wright County Board of Commissioners is reviewing a draft of Ordinance Amendment Number 19-2 for Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Inspections.

In summary, the 2019 proposed plan changes include:

  1. Expansion of included lakes
  2. Improved Inspector Training
  3. Development of a self-inspection program
  4. Lake service provider storage certification
  5. Spot checks at ramps
