New AIS Legislation

On our "Protect our Lake" page we have added this link:  AIS Prevention Law Effective 5/28/11

It is a summary of how the new 2011 laws related to prevention of aquatic invasive species (AIS) now apply to boaters, property owners, service providers, bait dealers and others involved with the transportation of water-related equipment.

The Minnesota DNR has posted a YouTube video on how to properly inspect your boat when moving it from one lake to another.  It explains the new law regarding bait containers and bait water, drain plug rules and decontamination procedures to kill zebra mussels and other AIS.
