AIS Training for Lake Service Providers in Brainerd on January 26
Dear Friends and Partners,

We need your help to notify all lake service providers in your region that the mandatory statewide AIS training and permitting for people who install and remove water recreation equipment as required by new state laws passed in 2011. The upcoming training in your region is the perfect opportunity to reach out to all lake service businesses in your community and to remind them that according to the law, service providers are individuals or businesses hired to install or remove water-related equipment, such as boats, docks, boat lifts or structures, from waters of the state. And they are now required to obtain a permit from the DNR before providing any of those services. The DNR will begin to implement and enforce this during the 2012 open water season.

Please take a few minutes to contact the lake service providers in your community to let them know about the upcoming training opportunity in your region:

January 26, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Northland Arboretum

Please find training directions, additional details and all of the statewide training dates/locations on the Minnesota Waters' website.  (in the quick link box to the right)
