Zebra Mussels found for the first time in California Reservoir

This article describes the recent find of Zebra Mussels in a California Reservoir, San Justo Lake near Hollister.  This lake is just south of San Jose in the San Fransisco Bay Area.  Luckily this lake is over the mountain range from the Central Valley Irrigation and Potable Water Delivery systems so there is no direct connection.  Speculation is that it came in on a recreational boat.  One more reason we all need to start keeping our eye out for these species.  Aquatechnex will be helping the lakes we manage deploy monitoring stations and looking at them on a regular basis to insure early detection of this problem species.
