Attention boaters, lake shore residents, and outdoor enthusiasts:
As you remove your boats, lifts, and other water craft this fall, please make sure to check them for invasive species. Two lakes in Scott County currently have zebra mussels: Upper and Lower Prior Lakes. We need everyone’s help to keep them from spreading.
The below short video summarizes what to look for and what to do to prevent the spread of zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species.
If you find zebra mussels or anything else that looks suspicious attached to your equipment, please contact the Department of Natural Resources at 1-651-259-5100. Please ask to speak to an Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Specialist.
Learn tips on how to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species to Scott County in thisbrochure.
