Federal Funding for AIS Prevention
An effort to prevent invasive aquatic species from spreading to the Columbia River ecosystem has received federal funding as part of a larger act.

President Barack Obama signed the Water Resources Development Act of 2017 that provides funds to assist in establishing new boat inspection stations and for maintaining existing stations in the northwest.

Boat inspection stations check boats for and remove quagga and zebra mussels. The invasive species kill freshwater muscles, clog pipes at power and water treatment plants and attach to boats, increasing drag and affecting steering.

According to the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission, the potential cost of a quagga mussel introduction into the Pacific Northwest has been estimated at more than $500 million annually.
