Tahoe boat inspections now required

All boats in Lake Tahoe are subject to inspection before launching, according to a new Tahoe Regional Planning Agency code last week.

The TRPA Governing Board unanimously adopted two new provisions in regards to aquatic invasive species and Lake Tahoe at its meeting. The first provision prohibits the introduction of aquatic invasive species into the Lake Tahoe region. It also prohibits any boat contaminated with invasive species from launching into Lake Tahoe. The second provision subjects all watercraft to an inspection by TRPA officials or designees before launching in order to prevent the spread of invasive species.
