ZEBRA MUSSEL WARNING!

          In July 2009, Laurel Lake in Lee became the first -- and so far the only -- Berkshire County lake or pond to be infested with the invasive species. Zebra mussels did eventually spread from the lake downstream to Laurel Brook and the Housatonic River as far south as the Connecticut line.
