zebra mussels found in sauk lake
25-Sep-2018

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed reports of zebra mussels in Sauk Lake, near Sauk Centre in Todd County. A resident on the northeast side of Sauk Lake contacted the DNR after finding numerous zebra mussels up to one-half inch in length on a boat lift being removed for the season. DNR invasive species staff found zebra mussels on rocks in the same area of the lake. Sauk Lake is downstream from Lake Osakis and the Sauk River to Guernsey Lake, where zebra mussels were previously confirmed. Zebra mussels can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species.
