Grant to let ‘nuisance species’ checks continue at Ruedi
August 2, 2012
BASALT – A $10,000 grant issued by Colorado Parks and Wildlife will allow continued inspections for aquatic nuisance species at Ruedi Reservoir east of Basalt.
The grant was awarded to the Ruedi Water and Power Authority, which works with the wildlife division and U.S. Forest Service to monitor for zebra and quagga mussels.
The grant was issued through the Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s 2012 Motorboat Colorado! program, which funds projects that open new waters to motorboats or improve facilities at lakes or reservoirs that already allow motorboat access.
