Life in Minnesota depends on water. But zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species are having a devastating effect on the state’s lakes and the businesses and recreation that depend on them.
A project on Lake Minnetonka is looking for solutions to controlling zebra mussel populations, and increase the health of the lake. It’s a collaboration between the one-of-a kind Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center at the University of Minnesota and the US Geological Survey. If successful, the treatment could provide a blueprint for preserving this treasured resource.
