If you are moving your boat from one lake to another and do not have sufficient time to allow it to dry thoroughly, you need to decontaminate your watercraft and gear to ensure you are not transporting invasive species that are not visible or removable.
Becker County has purchased three decontamination units and will decontaminate your watercraft free of charge charge. Contact the Becker County Soil and Water Conservation District for decontamination locations and hours of operation. (218)846-7360
