The decision to base a permanent inspection and decontamination station for invasive mussels in Penticton rather than Osoyoos is not a concern for the Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB).

James Littley, OBWB operations and grants manager, said he has other questions about how the stepped up program announced recently by the provincial government will operate, but the location of the station isn’t one of them.

Littley made the comments after members of Osoyoos town council expressed concerns at their April 4 meeting about the location of the station.
