Update on Quagga Mussell Issue

The Monterey County Water Resources Agency will be conducting mussel training at the MCWRA office in late May for the government agencies who will be coordinating the Mussel Prevention Program.  The training session will be conducted by the CDFG for Monterey and San Luis Obispo County staff that will involved with the Quagga issue.

Along with training, this will be a good opportunity to get a roundtable discussion of how to deal with combating the mussel problem in both reservoirs in the future.

Monterey County Parks Department is passing out a mussel flyer from the CDFG to boaters coming into San Antonio and Nacimiento lakes, and game wardens from Fish and Game will be conducting public outreach on the mussel issue on May 17 on both lakes.

In addition, the MCWRA will be installing 3 ft. signs at all launch ramps in the next few weeks at both lakes for boaters to be aware of the mussel issue.
