Zebra mussels infiltrate Clearwater County

The first zebra mussel infestation in Clearwater County appears to have manifested in Lomond Lake.

According to a release from the DNR, samples from the lake near the city of Bagley had recent laboratory analysis which showed 30 microscopic zebra mussel larvae, called veligers.

These samples were taken from the lake in late August, and while no adult or juvenile zebra mussels were found, the amount of veligers indicates a reproducing population.

Lake property owners should carefully check boats, trailers, docks, lifts and all other water-related equipment when preparing to store them for the season.
