Water Quality Milfoil
 
Eurasian watermilfoil is a submersed invasive aquatic plant that was inadvertently introduced to Minnesota. Milfoil was first discovered in Lake Minnetonka during the fall of 1987. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants.
 
Stop Milfoil Milfoil is spread from one body of water to another primarily by the introduction of plant fragments. A milfoil fragment only a few inches long can form roots and grow into a new plant. The most important action that you can take to limit the spread of milfoil is to remove all vegetation from your watercraft before you move from one body of water to another.  See Inspect Your Craft and Clean-In Clean-Out for more details.
