Zebra mussels found in Red River in Moorhead
(FNS) — The Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that zebra mussels were found at the Moorhead pumping station intake on the Red River, Moorhead Public Service announced Tuesday, May 24.
The zebra mussels were discovered during routine maintenance on pumping equipment.
The discovery of adult zebra mussels comes nearly one year after an adult zebra mussel was found on an intake screen at the Fargo Red River intake.
In 2013, MPS completed modifications to the Red River Pumping Station, which included adding an intake screen composed of a zebra mussel repellent alloy. A routine inspection completed in March showed no zebra mussels attached to the intake screen, water plant Supervisor Kevin Young said.
But the zebra mussels were recently found on pumping equipment, Young said.
“It’s been a concern for awhile,” he said Tuesday.
In addition to the mussel-repellent screen, MPS could also use chemical products to control zebra mussel infestations, Young said.
If the mussels start attaching to the intake screen, or get into the pipe to the pump station, they could reduce water intake flows.
“It’s been something we’ve been monitoring for quite some time,” Young said. “There are other communities in Minnesota that have zebra mussel infestations. It’s not an entirely new thing, but it’s something to keep an eye on.”
Zebra mussels were found on the screen to Fargo’s Red River water intake in early July 2015.
