Rotary donation to help prevent zebra mussels


On June 24, Chris Smith, of Cranberry Portage was on hand to receive a two-thousand-dollar cheque from The Pas Rotary Club to assist in the prevention of zebra mussels and aquatic invasive species in the Saskatchewan River Control Zone. The Rotary Club was on hand to highlight new signage at the boat launch beside the Anglican Church. Zebra mussels have been found as close as Cedar Lake. When leaving a Control Zone and transporting your watercraft, which includes boats, canoes, kayaks and personal watercraft, to any other waterbody, by law, you are required to have it, and items that have been in the water, decontaminated. Free decontamination is available at the Clearwater Lake turnoff, north of The Pas.
