Lake Melissa was declared infested with zebra mussels last week, and that puts Becker County behind the 8-ball on invasive aquatic species.

“The AIS plan identifies some objectives, the work plan will figure out how to obtain those objectives,” said Becker County Environmental Services Director Steve Skoog.
