ARRA Mussel Detection Project

Reclamation is using a part of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to test Reclamation bodies of water for the presence of quagga and zebra mussels. Information on that project will be posted here.

ARRA Invasive Mussel Detection Project Reporting Protocols

Recognizing the sensitivity associated with positive detection of mussels in newly monitored water bodies, clear and consistent procedures are required for reporting results from the Mussel Detection Project. This document serves to communicate Reclamation’s reporting procedures to Reclamation management, State Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) Coordinators, and field and laboratory personnel involved in all phases of this project. Although positive detections are of great interest, there is also value in the reporting of negative results.
