Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

MUSSEL STOP -- A new quagga and zebra mussel decontamination station was > installed this week at Wahweap Marina in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.  With four hot water, high pressure washing systems, the station can decontaminate multiple boats at once; it is operated by ARAMARK – Lake Powell

Resorts and Marinas. All boats launched in Lake Powell must be certified as quagga or zebra  mussel free. To do this, visitors with boats must display a certificate on  their dashboard indicating that their boat is free of mussels.  The  certificate is available at entrance stations, where visitors with boats are asked a series of questions to determine whether or not their boats must be professionally decontaminated to kill any quagga or zebra mussels. Additional information about quagga mussels, including self-certification packets, is available online at www.nps.gov/glca.
