Standing on guard; stopping the Zebra and Quagga Mussel

(courtesy CBC)

According to the Okanagan Basin Water Board, more work has to be done to stop the Zebra and Quagga Mussels.

British Columbia has passed legislation making it illegal to transport the mussels, dead or alive.

But that is nothing like the work being done south of the border to sap the strength out of the advance of the mussels.

Doctor Anna Warwick Sears is the Executive Director of the Okanagan Basin Water Board.

The board is hosting a public meeting on Thursday night in Osoyoos at the Sonoro Community centre at 7pm. For more information go to obwb.ca
