LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- The public will get a chance this week to learn about a federal project to test possible new Asian carp defenses in La Crosse.
The state Department of Natural Resources has scheduled an informational meeting on the project for Wednesday evening at the U.S. Geological Survey Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center on French Island.
The project would focus on using water guns or underwater speakers to generate pressure and sound waves that would force the fish to swim away.
The work would take place sciences center. The USGS wants to move bighead and silver carp to the facility for the project. The agency has obtained a federal permit allowing transportation but still needs DNR approval.
