Army Corps Fighting off Underwater Invasion
For the past five years, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Omaha District’s Gavins Point project has been under attack! An invasion of an underwater invasive species known as zebra mussels has been slowly infiltrating the Gavins Point power plant.

Zebra mussels can:
• clog irrigation intakes and other pipes,
• attach to boat motors and boat hulls, reducing performance and efficiency,
• attach to rocks, swim rafts and ladders where swimmers can cut their feet on the mussel shells,
• attach to and smother native mussels, and
• eat tiny food particles that they filter out of the water, which can reduce available food for larval fish and other animals, and cause more aquatic vegetation to grow as a result of increased water clarity.
