MT/DAK Aquatic Invasive Species: Background: Historically, the State of Montana has been the lead agency in managing aquatic invasive species and the BLM Montana/Dakotas would like to support this effort. Aquatic invasive species (AIS) are those that impact water bodies and wetlands and whose presence can cause severe damage to local ecosystems, agriculture, hydro-power, recreation, and tourism. In particular, these impacts include effects to water delivery systems, diminished boating and fishing opportunities, and the degradation of aquatic habitat. Currently several invasive species such as Eurasian watermilfoil and New Zealand mud snails have found their way into Montanaâ¿¿s water bodies. Recently concerns regarding zebra and quagga mussels have surfaced with individuals or DNA signals being detected in two Montana Reservoirs. Objectives: BLM has an opportunity to work with a partner organization to assist with the prevention of aquatic invasive species in BLM managed waterbodies and riparian areas. This will require a coordinated effort, as Montanaâ¿¿s intermingled land ownership patterns make it impossible to fight this battle alone. For example, a single lake may have multiple entities managing the shoreline. If only one area were treated, the untreated areas would likely serve as a source area for re-invasion. The project will include detection, eradication, education (prevention), and monitoring. All four of these steps are key to the success of the project. Implement actions to prevent, control, and contain including education and awareness monitoring and reporting aquatic invasive species in cooperation between Bureau of Land Management Districts through implementation of cooperative agreements. Promote the Bureau of Land Management interests in an Integrated Weed management (IWM) system approach to undesirable plants and aquatic invasive species. Implement an IWM system using all available methods or a combination of methods including: (1) the most efficient and effective method of preventing, containing, or controlling undesirable plants species; (2) scientific evidence and current technology; (3) the physiology and habitat of a plant species; and (4) the economic, social, and ecological consequences of implementing the program. Public Benefit: All awards under this funding opportunity must benefit the general public. The partner organization and BLM will work together with private and non-federal landowners to prevent, contain and control the spread of noxious weeds and aquatic invasive species. Because these noxious weeds and aquatic invasive species move rapidly from one ownerâ¿¿s land to another, joint efforts to eradicate, contain or control them will reduce adverse impacts on public and private lands.
