Mussels on Green Lake?

A report than an adult zebra mussel was found on a dock post on the southeast side of Green Lake, near Spicer, is being investigated by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The “rapid response” investigation Tuesday included an extensive search of private docks and public boat landings. Ann Pierce, DNR section manager for the Division of Ecological and Water Resources, said late Tuesday afternoon that a report had not yet been filed by DNR officer Nick Brown.

Terry Frazee, executive secretary of the Green Lake Property Owners Association board and a member of Kandiyohi County’s new Aquatic Invasive Species Task Force, said the search was in response to a resident who brought what is believed to be a single zebra mussel to the local DNR office.
