Invasive Mussel Found in Utah

The Utah Department of Natural Resources found an extremely invasive mussel under a dock at Utah's Sand Hallow Reservoir. State officials want the public to know that this is bad news, is very serious and the public needs to help take action to keep contamination from spreading. Mussels are ecosystem killers because they clog dams and waterways, cut people's feet when they attach to rocks and kill fish by sucking up nutrients.
