Water-Sports Advisory

In recent years, several water bodies in the southwestern United States, including California, have become infested with the non-native Quagga mussel. This species is very invasive and once introduced can proliferate rapidly. The spread of these mussels can be very damaging to the native ecosystem and ultimately cause significant harm to water collection and distribution systems, including power generating facilities. Fortunately they have not currently know to exist in any PG&E reservoirs. The biggest risk in the spread of this species is the movement of watercraft or water related equipment from infested waters. If you are planning to bring a boat or other water borne equipment to a PSEA facility find out more about how you can help prevent the spread of this species by going to the Department of Fish and Game website at http://www.dfg.ca.gov/invasives/quaggamussel.
