Hello SRCL Homeowner,
The MN DNR has confirmed Zebra Mussels found on Knaus Lake. At this time, we are asking homeowners to inspect your docks and boat lifts.  If you find anything suspicious, please contact the MN DNR as describe below or contact Matt Noska 763-913-5654 noska76@aol.com or John Rocky 320-493-7992 rockyjohnmn@gmail.com.

The MN DNR will be adding Knaus Lake to MN lakes infested with Zebra mussels in the coming weeks.  Below is the announcement from the MN DNR.

Letter from Minnesota DNR.
We confirmed two zebra mussels on Knaus Lake yesterday. We will conduct some dock/lift searches this fall, although will likely continue monitoring their distribution next summer.  As of now, we will be listing Knaus Lake infested. Further monitoring and searching will determine if other basins will eventually be listed. Since the fall is the best time to check your dock, lift or equipment, we would like to hear back from any resident that locates one on their property. More information can be found here: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/invasives/aquaticanimals/zebramussel/index.html.

If you suspect that you have found a zebra mussel, please follow these steps:

1.      Note the exact location where the specimen was found
2.      Take a picture and collect the specimen in question
3.      Report it to your Invasive Species Specialist (Christine Jurek: 320-223-7847). Email would be preferred: Christine.jurek@state.mn.us
Thanks for any assistance in reporting any additional zebra mussels.
