The Douglas County Lakes Association (DCLA) is taking another step in its prevention efforts to help stop the spread of aquatic invasive species, such as zebra mussels.


The association, according to Bonnie Huettl, a member of the DCLA, is planning to submit three grants to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

The grants are being written by DCLA, but can include all lakes within Douglas County, not just those that are members of DCLA.
