The grants we receive from the Wisconsin DNR are a 75% –25% split, which means the RTLIA is responsible for 25% of the cost. We do have the option of offsetting our 25% by recording volunteer time via this website.
The RTLIA receives $12 per hour for time we spend performing specific tasks improving our lakes and these are tasks many of us are already performing!
Examples of your time that can be applied to our 25% cost are:
LMIS – Inspect Around Dock/Lake for Curly-leaf Pondweed**
LMIS – Inspect Around Dock/Lake for Eurasian watermilfoil – ** This can be used when removing any weeds from around docks or when driving around the lake provided are you looking for invasive species at the same time.
LMIS – Fall Dock Inspection and Weed Removal (Zebra mussels, Invasive Species) – All Weeds must be removed prior to pushing the dock back in every Spring
E – Boat inspection when Removing Boat at Landing (Enter 30 minutes for each time)- All weeds must be removed from boat and trailer – it’s the Law in Wi.
