Whiskeytown, Shasta and Trinity Lakes National Recreation Area Boater Alert
Quagga and zebra mussels are a threat to our area and are now close by! The Colorado River system and many lakes in southern California have recently become infested. Since invading the U.S. in 1989, Quagga and Zebra mussels have become a 5 billion dollar maintenance and damage problem east of the Rockies.
They have altered fish and aquatic ecosystems, have caused extensive damage to boats, marinas, and water intake facilities, and will undoubtedly hurt us locally if they become established here.
CLEAN, DRAIN & DRY your boat
We don’t have them now, we don’t ever want to have them, and we should all do everything we can to prevent them from coming here!
