How Aquatic Species Invade
Be a GREAT Boater! Check, Clean, Drain & Dry! RIDEM encourages the use of clean boat hygiene practices. CHECK boats for plant fragments before launching in the water AND after boats have been hauled out of the water. CLEAN any plant fragments, and dispose of them away from the water. Allow boats to DRY overnight at least 24 hours before putting in at another lake.
See posted reminders at state boat ramps.
