From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):
No confirmed reports of the mussels within Colorado have been received so far this year, although there have been eight cases where mussels were found on boats coming into the state, Colorado State Parks reported Monday. The mussels were found on the boats as inspectors looked at more than 200,000 boats coming into the state…
“We are seeing more boaters showing up already cleaned, drained and dry,” said Rob Billerback, manager of the biological programs for Colorado State Parks. “Most boaters also show up having heard of zebra mussels, so they understand why we are doing this program to protect Colorado’s lakes, reservoirs and streams.”[...]
Researchers continue to test above and below Pueblo Dam, but have found no new evidence of mussels in Lake Pueblo. The first larvae of zebra mussels were found in Lake Pueblo in late 2007 and confirmed in 2008.
