Notice of Public Hearing on Proposed Amendment to ARM 12.5.707 Pertaining to Removing Canyon Ferry Reservoir from the List of Identified Bodies of Water Confirmed or Suspected for AIS

Rules

12/26/2019

On January 22, 2020, the department will hold a public hearing at the Fish, Wildlife and Parks Headquarters Building, 1420 E 6th Street, Helena, Montana, to consider the proposed amendment. In 2017, the detection of invasive mussel larvae resulted in quarantine requirements and the listing of "suspect" for invasive mussels for Canyon Ferry Reservoir. Following regional guidelines for invasive mussel detection, intensive early detection monitoring was conducted for three years. Following three years of no invasive mussel detection, regional guidelines allow for the delisting of a suspect waterbody and the removal of the mandatory exit inspection requirements. Please see the proposal notice for more information.
