Salmon Arm pushes for action on invasive mussels

Salmon Arm Observer – May 22, 2014

The City of Salmon Arm is adding its voice in the call for preventative action on invasive mussels.

Municipal council agreed to write a letter supporting the Okanagan Basin Water Board’s (OBWB) call to action by the federal government on preventing invasive zebra and quagga mussels from entering B.C., which could “irrevocably harm our environment, economy and way of life.”

The OBWB’s request was presented to council in a letter to the feds by the Village of Midway, which supports the federal government taking a lead in the matter, including the passing of regulations to prohibit the transportation of invasive mussels into Canada.
