In a previous e-News, we let residents know that the invasive species, zebra mussels, have been found in Lake Raystown. Council and residents alike have shared the same concerns that Indian Lake could be susceptible to zebra mussels. A conversation with Bill Kirkpatrick with Aquatic Environmental Consultants gave us a better idea of how to ensure that we do not end up with this invasive species. With help from the residents being diligent about cleaning, drying and disinfecting their boat and trailer if it is being used in another body of water is critical. Kirkpatrick urged that any boat or trailer that is taken to another body of water and then returned to Indian Lake be cleaned with bleach and left to dry for seven days before being put back into Indian Lake. He also noted that ballast tanks and water pumps be flushed with fresh water. Please help spread the word and let’s all do our part to guarantee we do not pollute our lake with this invasive species.
