The Town of Belleville already spent millions of dollars to clean up Lake Belleview. For decades it was listed as "poor" for aquatic life. But now the Wisconsin DNR said they discovered a new problem. Wildlife officials found an invasive species of Carp in the lake last year, after they already completed the recent restoration project.

The DNR said there’s another round of work ahead.

“Carp are very tenacious species, so they are very hard to manage,” said Carroll Schaal, DNR.
“We'll see if the netting, the sanding did a good job on them, and maybe the other game fish will catch up and we'll have a pretty stable fishery. If not we'll try some other technique."

The DNR hope this is the last major step in this latest round of restoration, but still need to wait for the lake levels to rise.
