It is with great sadness that we have to inform you the DNR has found zebra mussels in our lake. We were notified by them on Friday, July 17 that a resident had reported to them finding a zebra mussel which was attached to a rock, but was determined to be dead.
Over the last few days, the DNR has been evaluating the lake and in three areas have found mature, live zebra mussels. This means our lake will be added to the growing list of "infested lakes".
We as a lake association have done all we could do to battle this situation from occurring from informing people of the issues, investing in brochures and pamphlets, and spending thousands of dollars on inspections of boats and trailers. We wish the DNR was as concerned as we have been. We feel the huge increase in boat traffic, especially over the weekends,on our lake is a direct result of the DNR"s investment in the enlargement and remodeling of our two lake accesses. It stands to reason, more boats, more problems.
At this point all we can do is see how our lake responds to its new condition. There is no current way to eradicate zebra mussels. The DNR representative said they can only grow in 20 -30 feet of water so our shoreline, swimming areas, fish spawning areas, fishing weedbeds, and docks and lifts will be effected.
The one thing that we can do is continue our efforts to control additional invasive species from coming into our waters. We have to all be diligent in properly draining fish boxes and water bladders from our boats, removing any weeds from our propellers and trailers and paying attention to used docks and lifts that are moved into the lake.
