From the Loveland Reporter-Herald (Pamela Dickman):

Larimer County has hired and trained about 34 inspectors who, on days when weather won’t prevent boating, will be at the docks 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day. The inspectors give each boat a careful once over before it is allowed to launch to make sure no nuisance mussels are attached…

Last summer, the county started inspections on every boat going into its reservoirs. Inspectors checked 56,000 boats and found [invasive] mussels attached to three before they hit the waters at Horsetooth Reservoir. This will be the third year for inspections at Boyd Lake State Park. During that time, no invasive mussels have been found on boats.

More invasive species coverage here and here.
