Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) biologists and divers searched lake bottoms last week on the immediate surrounding areas where zebra mussels were discovered last fall on boat lifts on Lake Irene in Douglas County and Rose Lake in Otter Tail County.
It’s that time of year again when homeowners on area lakes are beginning to pull their docks, lifts and other equipment out of the water. But this year, lakeshore property owners on several area lakes – L’Homme Dieu, Carlos, Darling, Geneva, Victoria, Jessie and Alvin – need to keep a watchful eye on everything they bring in.
Starting this weekend, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is increasing enforcement efforts to prevent the transportation of aquatic invasive species from several lakes in the Alexandria area.
A local resident found a zebra mussel attached to a coffee can in the northeast corner of Lake L’Homme Dieu in Alexandria last week.
Mitch Gesell, who lives about two miles away from where the mussel was found, was out for a run and decided to stop at a friend’s house to take a swim.
