Strategies to Conduct Vulnerability Assessments for High Priority Columbia River Basin Hydropower and Dam Facilities (April 2014)

Prioritizing zebra and quagga mussel monitoring in Columbia River Basin (Wells et al. 2010):

The purpose of this report is to provide a framework for the prioritization of water bodies in the Columbia River Basin and the Greater Northwest region (surrounding areas in Oregon, Washington, California, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming) for early detection monitoring for dreissenid mussels. Our ability to assess the relative risk of establishment and introduction of dreissenid mussels was confounded by significant gaps in the data necessary to rigorously predict where dreissenid mussels will become introduced and subsequently established.
