Aquatic Invasive Species

In 2012, the Otter Tail County Board decided to address Aquatic Invasive Species in our County and established an AIS Task Force. The AIS Task Force includes a diverse membership, their mission is “to develop programs and strategies to support and enhance the protection of Otter Tail County waters”.

In order to address their Mission Statement, the Task Force emphasizes on providing awareness and education on the prevention of the spread of AIS. One of our big programs is our Watercraft Inspection Program, in summer of 2016 we expanded the Program to include 16 Watercraft Inspectors – so it is very likely that boaters will have contact with them as they utilize the public accesses in Otter Tail County.
