Zebra Mussel Committee

The Zebra Mussel Committee protects Stockbridge Bowl from the invasion of Zebra Mussels, through our monitoring programs and if needed a free Boat Wash(if the watercraft has not been decontaminated according to DCR procedures).

Laurel Lake in Lee as well as the Housatonic River below Woods Pond is contaminated with Zebra Mussels; once they get into a water body, there is no method to rid the water body of the invasive species, whether chemical or other methods are used.

New York state is heavily contaminated with Zebra Mussels, including the Hudson River, Lake George etc.; also lakes in Connecticut are contaminated.
