Spread of Invasive mussels to Lake Mendota a very bad sign

Now spreading explosively in Lake Mendota, invasive Zebra mussels have made their way out of the Great Lakes and will eventually infect waters in the US West, ruining fish stocks and driving up the cost of maintaining generating plant and drinking water intake pipes.

Every boater and angler has to be super vigilant against initiating cross-lake contamination.

Best source about all this is Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Dan Egan's great new book "The Death and Life of The Great Lakes."
