The Local Water Access Editor Application is a web-based mapping tool that provides local government units (LGUs) the ability to review and update location and public information about public water access sites within their county. Changes can only be made to sites not administered by the DNR.
Staff involved in their county's AIS Prevention Aid program may use this application to review, edit, add and delete local water access site features.
Edits made in this application are verified by DNR staff. Changes that are deemed accurate and consistent with site conditions will be included in the authoritative water access site dataset. These data will be used by the Minnesota Department of Revenue to calculate the distribution of the Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention Aid. All information in the authoritative dataset is available for public distribution and is used to make several products, including digital and printed maps.
