Mandatory Boat Inspections on Lake George
In an effort to stop the spread of aquatic invasive species discussions sponsored by the Lake George Park Commission is asking residents to offer suggestions to the protect Lake George from new invasive species.

A consultant for the organization suggested that mandatory boat inspections would provide the highest level of protection for Lake George. The question now is if adopted, how will the program be funded? Dave Wick, Park Commission executive director, estimated the cost of an inspection/decontamination program would be $150 to $200 per boat.

Approximately 16,000 boats register for use on Lake George each year. About 1/3 of those boats are “transient”, coming to Lake George from 193 water bodies in 15 different states. With 103 known launch sites on Lake George, it is not possible to inspect every boat at every launch, but it will decrease the odds of introducing new invasive species to the water.

Lake Whatcom Water Quality Issues - The lack of oxygen is caused by algae growth which is fed by large quantities of phosphorous. The phosphorous comes from the soils and hillsides, but also comes from fertilizers and animal waste. In the summer of 2009 the city of Bellingham had to restrict water use because there was so much algae in the lake which was clogging the filters on the city water pipe and making it hard for water to get through.
