Mussel Scourge
FILE - In this Feb. 7, 2012, file photo, Idaho State Rep. Eric Anderson poses in his offices in the Idaho Capitol in Boise with an Idaho license plate he left for six months in Lake Mead near Las Vegas to be encrusted with quagga mussels. A regional power planning group from Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Montana is pursuing $2 million from the federal government to help fend off the menace of invasive mussels that have clogged Colorado River reservoirs since 2007. These states and others say they're frustrated by the number of boats that continue to come from Lake Mead in Nevada and Arizona over their borders infested with quagga and zebra mussels.
