Abstract : Chemical control is a versatile and proven cost-effective method that can be used in a reactive manner to rapidly reduce the impacts of an established zebra mussel infestation. In addition, chemicals can be used proactively to prevent zebra mussel establishment at susceptible public facilities. Facilities identified as susceptible to zebra mussel infestation include those associated with raw water systems used in potable water treatment, agricultural irrigation, industry, and power generation (for example, intake structures and cooling water, irrigation, house service water and fire protection lines) and those associated with management and control of inland waterways (including navigation structures, water level control structures, vessel locks, stream level gauging stations, pumping stations, and drainage structures).
