POLSON — The Upper Columbia Conservation Commission is set to expand its membership under a new law.

Montana lawmakers created the commission, often referred to as UC3, in 2017. They tasked it with monitoring water quality and undertaking environmental protection efforts in Montana’s slice of the Columbia River Basin — the front line of a multimillion-dollar effort to stop the spread of invasive zebra and quagga mussels.
