Invasive enforcement over holiday weekendSubmitted: 06/28/2013
Story By Associated Press

STATEWIDE - Fifty-two counties will have volunteers and staff at boat landings over the July 4 holiday to provide free boat inspections.

They'll also hand out free towels and ice packs.

Their goal is to educate boaters on how to stop the spread of aquatic invasive species.

The Clean Boats Clean Waters program operates to fight these invaders all year.

But the Landing Blitz is a concentrated effort during the busiest boating weekend.

The "holiday landing blitz" runs from July 4th to the 7th, and will cover more than 250 popular waters statewide.

They'll teach boaters what they CAN do and what they're required by law to do to stop the spread of Eurasian water-milfoil and zebra mussels.
