Community Briefs: Sept. 1, 2012
Beware of invasive mussels
California agencies battling the spread of invasive quagga and zebra mussels are asking boaters to be especially vigilant over the three-day Labor Day weekend.
Boaters are asked to clean, drain and dry motorized and non-motorized watercraft and any equipment that comes into contact with lakes, rivers or other waterways both before and after boating.
Quagga and zebra mussels are non-native freshwater mussels that multiply quickly and can encrust watercraft and infrastructure. They can also compete for food with more desirable species.
