Description: Technical note
Purpose: This technical note describes the evaluation of a low-velocity filter system to effectively reduce or eliminate zebra mussel post larvae from entering a water intake system. Zebra mussel larvae enter water intake systems where they can attach to and grow on pipes and equipment. Over time, they can cause significant operational and/or maintenance problems within the pipes and equipment to which they attach. The removal of these mussels and the downtime caused to the operation can be costly.
