Tahoe Boat Inspections Move Back to Launch Ramps

Posted: Updated:

From the Tahoe Resource Conservation District:

On October 1, boat inspections will move to select launch ramps and winter hours will begin.  Tahoe RCD inspectors will be stationed at Cave Rock and Lake Forest boat launches from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week, weather permitting.  Boats with attached Lake Tahoe wire inspection seals and valid Tahoe inspection stickers will be permitted to launch during these times, but any unsealed boats are required to get an inspection during daylight hours. Decontaminations will be available through the month of October for watercraft that are not "Clean, Drain and Dry". Decontamination fees apply. Boats with intact inspection seals will still be permitted to launch at Sand Harbor, Obexer's and Tahoe Keys Marina, but no inspections or decontaminations are available at these locations.
 
"It is more efficient to move inspections back to the boat ramps with the decrease in boater traffic during the slower fall and winter months," said Dennis Zabaglo, Aquatic Invasive Species Program Coordinator at the TRPA, "but we expect to continue operations at roadside inspection locations for the 2014 summer boating season.  We appreciate the continued cooperation from Tahoe boaters in helping to protect our amazing recreational resources from the threat of aquatic invasive species and supporting our nationally recognized prevention program."
 
Inspection and boat ramp hours are weather permitting, and may be delayed or closed during winter storm conditions.  Boaters are encouraged to arrive "Clean, Drain and Dry" and to confirm hours and inspection locations online at TahoeBoatInspections.com or by calling the Tahoe Boat Inspection hotline toll-free at 888-824-6267.  Private launch facilities should be contacted directly for winter hours and weather closures.
