Rutland Water visitors asked to be alert as invasive quagga mussels spotted

The Environment Agency has asked visitors to Rutland Water to help limit the spread of quagga mussels.

The invasive molluscs are not native to this country, but have recently been found at Rutland Water and in the River Trent, near Newton-on-Trent, in Lincolnshire.

People using the river or reservoir are being urged to follow “check, clean, dry” procedures to try and prevent the spread.
