CommentsZebra mussels were found in Miller Lake, Carver County on July 23, 2018 by Carver County Water Management Organization. Six juvenile zebra mussels were found on a sampler plate place in the lake for early detection monitoring. Miller Lake is a private lake with no public access, drains Waconia and Burandt Lake, both with reproducing zebra mussel populations and is a natural reservoir of Carver Creek. Miller Lake will be added to the DNR Infested Waters List for zebra mussels for 2018 as well as any other connected water bodies.
