Fear of invasive mussel spreads to two Cortez-area reservoirs

The Journal file

In 2010, Narraguinnep Reservoir was closed to trailered watercraft while it was inspected for the quagga mussel contamination. The lake is negative for the invasive species, but there is a concern it is at risk, along with McPhee and Groundhog reservoirs.
Harvey Baker places a tag on a boat at McPhee Reservoir last year after making sure it is drained to prevent invasive species. McPhee now has shorter operating hours to keep mussels out.
