(UNDATED) - DNR grants totaling more than $585,000 will be used to fight invasive aquatic plants in Indiana's lakes.

Of that money, $5,200 is earmarked for New Lake in Gibson County and $5,000 for Lake Lemon in Monroe and Brown Counties.

The grants were awarded through the Lake and River Enhancement program in the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife.

The 42 projects involve lakes in 16 counties.

The applications were submitted by local sponsors who share at least 20 percent of the total cost.

LARE grants are funded through the LARE fee paid by boat owners annually when they register their boats with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
