 Preventing Zebra Mussels from entering Lake Pulaski.

Description: http://www.lakepulaski.com/cms_uploads/Zebra%20M%20pic-%20home%20page%284%29.jpgBoaters and lakeshore property owners must do everything possible to learn about this invasive species and take every action possible to help. If Lake Pulaski becomes infested we will no longer have the privilege to pump when the water is high.  Many Minnesota recreational lakes have been or soon will be infested with this non-native aquatic invasive species. Some popular Minnesota lakes currently infested with zebra mussels include: Minnetonka, Pelican, Le Homme Dieu, Fish Lake, Prior lake, Gull lake and Mille Lacs. To find out more about this aquatic invasive species and our fight to prevent it, visit the newly created Zebra Mussels page on this website where photos, information, and links to recent news articles will be archived.


Zebra Mussels are a major threat to our lake. This highly invasive specie has made it way to many popular lakes in Minnesota. We encourage you to learn about Zebra Mussels and understand the threat they pose for our Lake Pulaski.

The landing will be staffed with inspectors from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 pm from May 25th thru Sept 1st. The City of Buffalo will be responsible for hiring and supervision of the inspectors.  They will be trained by the DNR. The money budgeted last fall will go to pay for the labor cost and the City is absorbing the balance.  More detail on this at the annual meeting.  The inspectors are not authorized to refuse entrance to the lake, as only the DNR has that power.  However, the inspector can notify the Sheriff's department and take down the boater’s information to report them.

 We will be using a questionnaire that will be completed and are working on the best way to upload the data for future reference.   This will record last lake visited prior to coming to Pulaski, whether or not they live in Buffalo, type of boat (i.e. personal watercraft, fishing, runabout etc), drain plug in/out at launch, etc.   We will be using a variation of the questionnaire the VOLT inspectors used last year.   We are making progress but welcome ideas from folks on the lake. Any suggestions/comments can be submitted to our email address at LID@LakePulaski.com.
