Invasive Zebra Mussels Could Cost Millions if they Reach Reservoirs

Zebra mussels have spread southward through rivers and streams and now infest 14 Texas water bodies along five river basins. Canyon Lake is the infected water body nearest to Corpus Christi.

The spread of zebra mussels has serious economic consequences, recreational and environmental impacts. Dallas has spent millions trying to clear its mussel-encrusted infrastructure.
