  • A final report on Veliger abundance and settlement at different depths of Lake Mead is in preparation for delivery at the end of November 2011; sample analysis continues for Growth of adult quagga mussels within Las Vegas Wash/Las Vegas Bay with report delivery planned for the end of November 2011.
  • The Interagency Quagga Mussel Meeting was held on 08/25/2011; the next meeting is scheduled for 11/17/2011.

Project 2

  • Appendix 7, an addition to the Long-term Limnological and Aquatic Resource Monitoring and Research Plan for Lakes Mead and Mohave, has been revised with additional content added.
  • All available deliverables from NPS project partners have been collected for a close-out report to SNPLMA on all Water 2025 Conservation Initiative-funded projects (Rounds 4, 5, and 7); the report narrative was finalized and project files were linked to an organizer spreadsheet within an external hard drive for delivery.
  • The draft interagency quagga mussel needs statement was distributed to members of the Interagency Quagga Mussel Meeting group for review and revised.
  • The project group contributed to the NPS-funded U.S. Geological Survey Circular Report on the science of Lakes Mead and Mohave.
