Avoid Invasive Species!

The mantra of Clean, Drain, Dry has always been a good idea for boaters.  Now it's the law!


Do you take your boat to other lakes then return with it?

Or it may be your friends or renters who bring their boats to our lake. Did you ever consider these boats could be carrying invasive species that may negatively impact our ecosystem?

All boaters are now required to drain the bilge water and check their boats and trailers for any plants or other living organisms before launching in a new water body.  It’s a simple procedure, and one that you may do already – just pull the drain plug after you pull the boat out of the water, and carefully inspect the boat and trailer for plant material. It's now the law.

It’s also advised that you power wash and/or sun dry your boat before relaunching to ensure that you’re removing any tiny invasive creatures.

If we don’t act, things can change quickly.
