What's changed at Lake Powell

Quagga mussels are spreading in Lake Powell, and with the detrimental impact they have on fisheries, beaches, boats and water lines, we want to prevent them from infesting any other waterbodies. If you plan to boat at Powell, be prepared for longer inspection and decontamination lines, particularly on weekends when wait times may exceed an hour or more. Our technicians are routinely finding mussels attached to boats, their anchors, and in sea strainers and we need to be thorough in detecting and removing them. Thank you for your patience.
