A first by the Minnesota DNR. It's attempting to control a small population of zebra mussels, on an area lake. DNR biologists are spreading copper sulfate on Rose Lake in Otter Tail County today. The DNR discovered a small number of juvenile zebra mussels September 28th. It suspects they were transported to the lake on a boat lift. After the treatment, Rose Lake will be checked frequently for any more zebra mussels. It will also be designated as infested water.
