After lake residents reported finding a zebra mussel attached to a rock in the northeast bay, DNR crews searched the area July 29 and found another adult zebra mussel.

Lake Mary and several other lakes will be designated as infested waters and signs will be posted at all public accesses as soon as possible. The designation begins with Lake Mary and continues downstream, eventually reaching Lake Brophy and the rest of the Alexandria chain which is already infested with zebra mussels.

  • Skoglund Slough.
  • Unnamed (21047900).
  • Grill.
