There were New Zealand mudsnails discovered along one portion of the College Lake shoreline in fall 2011. The mudsnails are the same variety that were previously discovered in Boulder Ck., a stretch of the S. Platte in Elevenmile Canyon, and at least one of the Delaney Buttes Lakes. They are small and easily transported, so the CSU students worked with CPW to come up with a process for decontaminating waders before they get to the lake (so that no new species pop up) and decontaminating them before they leave, so that any NZMS that might be trying to hitchhike don't get out.
