SALT LAKE CITY — A quagga mussel infestation was revealed when water levels dropped at Lake Powell over the winter, according the Division of Wildlife Resources Facebook page.

The video above is from the back of Navajo Canyon. DWR officials remind boaters and other water users to clean, drain and dry their equipment.

“We want to keep the rest of Utah’s waters free of the STD of the sea,” DWR wrote on Facebook.
