Since the end of June, zebra mussels have only been found in one lake on Alexandria's chain of lakes - Lake L'Homme Dieu.

Since that time, zebra mussels have not been found in any other lake on the chain.

However, last week, the DNR designated six more lakes, which are connected to Lake L'Homme Dieu, as infested waters.
