Smithville Lake is now battling zebra mussels, which can disrupt ecosystems and damage waterways and water treatment centers.

The mussels, which are native of the Black and Caspian seas, were first found in North America in 1988. The mussels can damage water treatment and power plants.

The mussel was found on a Smithville Lake lift. KMBC's Lara Moritz will explain on KMBC 9 News at 10 p.m. Tuesday why this discovery is so serious.
