Resource managers and cottage owners have a new tool in the fight to keep the state’s inland lakes from being infested by zebra mussels.
A Web site from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Limnology will help property owners determine how vulnerable their lakes are to an invasion.
The site displays a map of more than 12,000 lakes and identifies their susceptibility to an invasion. Not all lakes are at risk; many simply don’t have the right water chemistry to sustain a zebra mussel population.
