The spread of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) between the Great Lakes and Mississippi River Basin by way of the Chicago Area Waterway System (CAWS) is a pressing concern to resource managers in the Midwest region. Augmenting this spread are watercrafts traveling though the CAWS locks and dams. AIS are able to attach to boat hulls, equipment, or are present in the surrounding water during lock transfers. It has been proposed that chemically treating boats during lock transfers would be an effective way to reduce the spread of AIS. Of a range of treatments identified as candidates to do this, hot water and dissolved ozone ranked high as effective treatments causing the least amount of environmental impact. This study assessed the lethality [...]

This data and overarching project seeks to determine methods to treat lock and dam systems during boat transfers to prevent the spread of AIS. Specifically I am looking at a method capable of being utilized in the Chicago Area Waterway System to prevent the transfer of AIS between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River Basin.
