Zebra mussels present a serious risk for homeowners or commercial properties utilizing irrigation systems
that source water from the lake. With populations now reaching higher than 20,000 zebra mussels per square meter in some Minnesota Lakes,
it is imperative to regularly inspect and clean irrigation intakes to avoid clogging and permanent damage to your system.
Zebra mussels are small fingernail-sized animals that attach to solid surfaces in water. These mussels have sharp shells that can cause cuts and scrapes when attaching to swim rafts and ladders
The shells of this invasive species accumulate on the lake bottom, swim platforms, ladders, and even on the stalks of lake weeds. The shell edges are razor sharp and cut through the skin.

Zebra mussels can be transported on any of those objects as well, making it critical to check all hard surfaces and remove all aquatic vegetation
before leaving a lake. The microscopic larvae may also be transported by water contained in bait buckets, bilges or any other water moved from an infested lake or river.
Not only do zebra mussels have an impact on your family's recreation, but also on your property values and on our state's valuable water resources.
This zebra mussel buildup of up to 16" in some areas occured in a short period of time
despite high volume flow through these commercial irrigation intakes. Experienced technicians were able to restore to zebra-mussel
free condition in a matter of hours. These cost effective restoration techniques help to avoid permanent damage to downline pipes, and
prevent increased costs associated with accelerated aging of your irrigation system.
