The provincial government may establish eight full-time permanent inspection stations along its borders this year to counter the threat of invasive zebra and quagga mussels.

The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) is urging the province to move forward with a Ministry of Environment proposal, which would provide the stations the OBWB has been calling for since 2012.

The mandatory inspection stations would be in place for the 2016 boating season, if adopted, the OBWB says.
