OKANAGAN – The Okanagan Basin Water Board is calling on the provincial government to step up the fight against invasive quagga and zebra mussels by establishing permanent inspection stations at the five main highway entrances from Alberta.

As well, in a seven-point position paper, the water board is calling on the federal government to immediately step up training of Canadian Border Services Agency staff and increase inspection of boats entering B.C. through 11 federal border crossings in the south.
