Announcing a An Informational Open House for the proposed
Wright Regional Watercraft Inspection Program

When: Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 | 7pm-8pm Where: Annandale Municipal Park Pavilion (upper level)

The pilot plan is available on the Wright Soil and Water Conservation District website www.wrightswcd.org

The goal of this pilot is to improve Wright County’s task of preventing new introductions of aquatic invasive species (AIS). This pilot will require free entry inspections prior to launching water-related equipment on three lakes near the City of Annandale (Lake Sylvia, Lake John and Lake Pleasant). See more information at www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Management/wrip.html
