Zebra Mussel Control
Eliminate the high cost of zebra mussel damage. Zebra mussel infestation results in blockage or reduced flow in pipes and water intake systems, leading to water flow blockages and costly long-term impacts.
Hawkins is a distributor and service provider of EarthTech® QZ. EarthTech® QZ is an extremely effective and affordable molluscicide. Studies have confirmed that within a 48-96 hour period there is a complete mussel mortality.
EarthTech® QZ does not require any specialized equipment for application because QZ disperses readily and rapidly throughout the treated areas to a uniform concentration.
Water Treatment Plants
EarthTec® QZ can be used for Water Treatment Plant intake screen and pipeline protection against Zebra Mussels. EarthTec® QZ is EPA registered for use against zebra and quagga mussels and is certified by NSF for use in drinking water. It’s a great solution for Water Treatment Plants combating mussel infestations.
Power plants can use large volumes of water for cooling and zebra mussel infestation can clog pipes by forming colonies inside of the pipes. QZ can prevent infestation and keep the water flowing so they can operate at maximum efficiency. QZ can be applied at the intake structure using a conventional metering pump and dripping in a continuous dose. This way you keep all downstream locations free from mussel colonization.
