Report from S&T Project 19196: Development and Field Research on Next Generation Coatings for Mussel Mitigation on Infrastructure

Bureau of Reclamation has been investigating solutions to combat the freshwater invasive quagga and zebra mussels. Reclamation employees at the Technical Service Center began investigating specialized foul-release and anti-fouling coatings, beginning in 2008, as a method to combat the mussels on Reclamation infrastructure. Initial research projects provided insight to what made a coating successful for combatting the mussels. This led to the development of partnerships and material transfer agreements for developing the next generation of foul-release coatings that have improved performance for combatting the mussels, increased durability, and increase service lives.
