Boaters asked to lead effort on zebra mussels

BOATING -- Idaho has set up 15 roadside invasive species boat inspection stations, including five in the Panhandle. The goal is to prevent the state-by-state spread of exotic zebra and quagga mussels.

People transporting a watercraft near boat inspection stations are required to stop.

When going to any different water, remember to Clean, Drain, and Dry your boat.
