The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced on Tuesday that an $837,000 grant has been awarded to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks to combat invasive mussels in Montana.

The money will be used to improve inspection/decontamination stations; provide campsites for inspection staff; purchase inspection and decontamination equipment, materials and supplies, outreach materials, storage sheds, and shelters; and also provide for sampling and analysis.
