WE NEED YOUR HELP!
As you take out your docks and lifts this fall, please check for zebra mussels.
As you may know, earlier this summer the DNR responded to a report of zebra mussels in Big Cormorant Lake. Upon their own investigation they found 3 adult zebra mussels in 3 different locations on the lake. The Water Shed Board agreed to hire a private investigator and he found no zebra mussels. Another search was conducted with the investigator, the DNR, and many volunteers and the formal report is due out anytime, but again, no mussels were found. Our next step is to reach out to our lake renters and property owners.. this is where we need your help.
We are asking that everyone inspect their docks and lifts for zebra mussels when they remove them for the season.
If you do find any zebra mussels, please report it to your beach captain or any member of the BCLA board who will in turn report to the Water Shed board. If we find more zebra mussels, we will need to do some further investigations, but if there are no zebra mussels found, we can lay this issue to rest and continue the fight to keep aquatic invasive species out of our lake.

Please help in the detection of zebra mussels in BCL. Please consider putting out a cement block this fall in a couple of feet of water, deep enough that it will not freeze. Mussels are attracted to hard surfaces and will hopefully lodge on the inside of the block. This will hopefully give us an idea in the spring about how widespread they are.
The Water Shed Board funded the inspection of BCL earlier this fall and that board has given BCLA $5000,00 each of the past 5 years. We must keep working together to keep our lake beautiful.
