Mussels tighten chokehold

States seek federal help to combat invasive scourge
This quagga mussels-covered rock, held by Andrew Munoz of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, came from the Nevada reservoir. A regional power planning group from Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Montana is pursuing $2 million from the federal government to help fend off the menace of invasive mussels.
Quagga mussels quickly cover objects in infested lakes, and could wreak havoc on dams, irrigation systems and lakes prized for recreation, officials worry.
Idaho Rep. Eric Anderson left about 500 Idaho license plates for six months in Lake Mead near Las Vegas to be encrusted with quagga mussels. He plans to distribute them to Idaho outlets that sell boat tags.
