Boat Inspections Begin for Zebra Mussel in Idaho -You can't hit the water without one!

All boats, including canoes, jet skis and inflatables over ten feet long that pass an Idaho insZebra Mussellspection site must stop. If you fail to stop it's an $85 ticket.  The inspection is free and they will decontaminate for free.  If they find mussels there is no charge to decontaminate.

You are to clean, drain of all water and dry your water craft before dropping it into state waterways.

Boats must also get an invasive species sticker.  The Sticker is $22 and is purchased through the state department of parks and recreation. That fee pays for the inspection program.  The Inspection Stations will be open between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., seven days a week.

All boats entering Idaho must be inspected before hitting the water. Iinspection sites are now open to stop milfoil and mussels from invading Idaho's lakes and rivers. Zebra mussels have been traced back to a Ukrainian ship in the Great Lakes 30 years ago. They've spread across the United States but haven't reached Montana, Idaho or Washington yet. "They reproduce at an incredible rate. It impacts natural habitat and wildlife and it impacts states that have been infected financially.

We have mussel problems in some of our lakes here but they are trying hard to eradicate them.

Isn’t it kind of interesting that the boat inspection is free but that you have to pay $22 for an invasive species ticker with “pays for the inspection programs.” Gotta love government programs.
