The following document was produced by the Zebra Mussel Research Program (ZMRP). The ZMRP is sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and is assigned to the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) under the purview of the Environmental Laboratory.
The purpose of this document is to provide guidance on the selection and use of registered chemicals available for the control of the zebra mussel. To assist in the selection process, short summaries describing the various registered molluscicides and providing information on relevant strategies and application rates are presented. This work may be viewed in its entirety (The Zebra Mussel Chemical Control Guide, WES Document), or portions may be viewed with the hyperlinksprovided. Information on Chlorination as a Control Method, Ozone as a Control Method, and Aluminum Sulfate as a Control Method, which are not specific headings currently contained within the Zebra Mussel Chemical Control Guide, may be accessed through the above hyperlinks or through the Management and Control Options.
The Principal Investigator for production of this document was Dr. K. Getsinger of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Authored by Drs. S. Sprecher and K. Getsinger, the document was edited by the ERDC Information Technology Laboratory.
