Tahoe watercraft inspections will target mussels

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE – From May 16 until Labor Day, Lake Tahoe boaters should expect random, mandatory watercraft inspections at all public launch sites around the lake, the Tahoe Resource Conservation District indicated in a news release this week.

Inspections are designed to prevent the spread of zebra and quagga mussels to Lake Tahoe, and prevent the spread of existing aquatic invasive plants from Lake Tahoe to Fallen Leaf and Echo lakes.

To report seeing a zebra or quagga mussel, call (888) TAHOANS (824-6267).

For more information, call (530) 543-1501, ext. 111, or e-mail ncartwright@tahoercd.org.
