Impacts of mussels and hydroids in the LCR

Project ID: 1626
Principal Investigator: Sherri Pucherelli
Research Topic: Invasive Species
Funded Fiscal Years: 2016 and 2017
Keywords: None

Research Question

Will UV treatments in Reclamation Facilities be effective against biofouling on the LCR?

Need and Benefit

LCR has had some success with UV treatments on a limited basis, indicating that biofouling within Reclamation facilities is reduced with UV treatment. This research may provide a solution to facility biofouling in other Reclamation facilities.
