As boats laden with invasive mussels continue to show up at BC’s border, the Okanagan Basin Water Board is calling on the province to beef up its inspection program.

Corinne Jackson, the OBWB’s communication’s director, says the organization wants to see the province expand hours at its eight inspection stations from 8-10 hours a day, seven days a week, to at least during daylight hours.

It’s also asking the province to require all watercraft coming into the province report to an inspection station.
