As part of the Commonwealth’s efforts to control the spread of aquatic invasive species in lakes and ponds, I performed voluntary inspections of watercraft trailers and gear. I identified and removed hitchhiking plants and animals, educating the lake visitors about the invaders. I offered pamphlets and encouraged boating habits that helped to control pest plants. I also surveyed the frequency of vehicles and enforced helpful procedures, including emptying bait buckets, live-wells, and cooling water, all well away from shore.As part of the Commonwealth’s efforts to control the spread of aquatic invasive species in lakes and ponds, I performed voluntary inspections of watercraft trailers and gear.
