As of January 2015, the hatchery had operated for 5 full consecutive years without any violations of the settlement agreement. At that point the DNR no longer was required to fund 98% of the cost of lake and river sampling. But, we need to continue to monitor the lake and watershed to avoid the problems we’ve had in the past. This means that the PLIA is paying 100% of the cost of this critical work. Your membership and contributions are more important than ever.
