MINNESOTA (KTTC) -- The state's aquatic invasive species are spreading and the Department of Natural Resources is making another push to stop it.
They say 1 in 5 boaters are still breaking the law by arriving at the water access with drain plugs in and vegetation and zebra mussels attached.
Because of this, the DNR is sending out a warning to boaters reminding them to remove drain plugs and clean off their boats before and after being in the water.
Invasive species are a threat to Minnesota waters because they make it harder for native wildlife to survive.
