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.

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.
