No Further Signs of Zebra Mussels in Lake Minnewashta

Just a quick update on Lake Minnewashta. We had the zebra mussel veliger tow samples that were collected in July analyzed and no veligers (juvenile mussels) were found. There have been no new reports of zebra mussels since the one we found in June.
Thanks,

Goose Deterrent Lighting to be Installed at Minnewashta Regional Park beach

Carver County will be installing deterrent lighting at the Minnewashta Regional Park beach to further control Canada Geese from utilizing the park. The lighting will be installed the week of July 31st – August 4th The deterrent lighting system is a pilot program through September of this year and is anticipated to be installed again spring of 2018. If successful, the lighting will reduce operational costs associated with goose management and further our abilities to maintain and sanitary and inviting beach facility.

The lighting unit is solar powered and has a strobe effect which operates at night time hours. The units are installed at approximately knee height to best impact a goose’s line of sight. The lighting unit has been proven to be effective in other metro park areas.

Please contact Samuel Pertz, Carver County Parkes supervisor with questions or concerns; He can be reached at 952-466-5253.

Zebra Mussel Update

On June 15th, representatives from Carver County, the MCWD, and the DNR coordinated a post treatment lake-wide zebra mussel survey on Lake Minnewashta. Snorkelers and SCUBA divers surveyed about 8 areas around the lake including the bay where the public access is located. No zebra mussels were found in the main portion of the lake, however, we did find one single live zebra mussel near the access about 20 feet out from the dock on a rock. There really is no way to tell if the mussel is a remnant from last year that survived the treatment or if it is a new introduction.

At this point, we don’t think further treatment action is warranted, but we will continue monitoring. We will keep the Lake Association updated on subsequent monitoring efforts.
