Courtesy Boat Inspections

Our Courtesy Boat Inspection Program (CBI) is a part of the statewide effort to prevent the spread of invasive aquatic plants.

CBIs are the “first line of defense,” preventing plant fragments found hitchhiking on boats and trailers from entering our lakes. Both paid and volunteer CBIs work at boat launches throughout the watershed, talking with boaters and inspecting their watercraft as they launch and remove their boats. All plants found on boats, trailers and gear are removed, and suspicious plants are sent in for identification.

inspections performed in 2023 by 30 Mile's paid and volunteer inspectors to keep harmful invasive plants out of our lakes.
