Eradication and Control
The WAEMAP program exists to provide California water and power managers with information regarding invasive Eurasian mussels and preventing and managing infestations of these species, with an emphasis on irrigation and agricultural systems. You will find two sections under this page that have some over-lapping, but also more specialized information for different systems:
Control and Eradication in Agricultural and Irrigation systems (in development).
Control and Eradication in "Open" Lake, reservoir, and pond systems (Open systems have connections or store water in ecologically sensitive ponds, lakes, and reservoirs, so include some agricultural and irrigation systems). This information was developed as part of a symposium on eradication and control sponsored by California Sea Grant and University of California Cooperative Extension February 1-2, 2012 in San Diego, CA. Information from the workshop and presentations as well as information sheets on eradication and control strategies can be found on this link.
