Aquatic Nuisance Species/Mussels

The invasive quagga and zebra mussels have infiltrated the Great Lakes and are slowly making their way across the West.  If mussels get into waterways on the Western Slope, they could cause costly damage to water infrastructure, such as dams and irrigation equipment.  Recreational boat inspections have been taking place on McPhee Reservoir and House Creek, but funding has decreased for inspections in recent years.  McPhee should be open seven days a week, but House Creek will probably only be open four days a week.  Lake access will be closed when inspections are not happening.
