Zebra-Mussel Infested Boats
at Lake Mead
 

These are some of the boats that have come through and been caught on the way to Lake Mead. The boat at Temple Bar was caught by an alert Ranger and impounded until it was decontaminated. The two from the Marine Center were caught by their alert boat mechanics. The boat at Lake Mead Marina was caught because the moorage manager knew in advance that it was coming in from back East and informed me. I found them when I did the inspection. The folks at the marina now know first hand exactly what to look for and that will help in the future.
