• Zebra Mussel Juveniles Advance Down Housatonic River

”Zebra mussel veligers -- the tiny, nymphal stage of the highly invasive, non-native mussel -- have been found in the Housatonic River near the Rocky River hydroelectric power plant.

”However, they have yet to be found in Candlewood Lake -- the lake that the Rocky River plant regulates by pumping in water from the Housatonic.”
