Biologists search for mussels in Densons Creek, Montgomery County. The mussel inventory was done in anticipation of the September 2012 removal of the decrepit Troy Reservoir No. 1 dam. Finding and identifying mussels prior to dam removal gives biologists a chance to remove rare mussels from the removal area, and it provides a baseline against which post-removal mussel populations can be compared.
