Clean Boats, Clean Waters

Help Stop the Spread of Invasive Species!


2016 was the sixth year that Dane County actively participated in the statewide Clean Boats, Clean Waters program to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Our inspector James Johnson worked at several boat landings in the county, where he talked with boaters about the aquatic invasives prevention steps: 1) inspect boats, 2) remove plants, 3) drain all water from boat and equipment, and 4) never move plants or live fish away from a waterbody.  Look for Dane County's Aquatic Invasives Removal Stations, with tools to help you reach plants under your boats and trailers. Visit this Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources page for more about state invasive species requirements. Check out these statewide Clean Boats, Clean Waters training videos.
