The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USAE) has begun a four-year research program to develop environmentally sound control strategies for zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) infestations at public facilities. The USAE Waterways Experiment Station has initiated research for these facilities which include water-intake structures, navigation locks, gated dams, outlet works, pumping plants, hydropower plants, drainage structures, dredges and commercial vessels.
