The department of Natural Resources did a removal of Freshwater Mussels (Clams) Wednesday morning in Clintonville downtown bridge. The bridge is going to be replaced in 2015 due to a road project of Clintonville North Main Street that will start at 10th street and move north to Highway 156/22. Environment Analysis and review specialist Bobbi Jo Fischer. Talked with media on the plan of attack. The Mussels (Clams) normally are taken up stream but due to a dam the Mussels (Clams) will be taken down stream. When asked since the road project will not happen until 2015 if the Mussels (Clams) would return or new ones would form very likely a few would return or new ones would form but not enough to have an impact on the population.
