TWIN FALLS, Idaho — The Idaho State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) is hosting a town hall in Twin Falls on Sunday, October 1 to address the imminent quagga mussel treatment on the Snake River.

The species is known for the economic damage that it can cause in fields like agriculture, recreation, hydropower, and water ecosystems.

The meeting's announcement follows an extension on the Snake River closures which Idaho Fish and Game introduced to slow the spread of the invasive species.
