24-hour Automated Boat Inspection System
A new 24-hour automated boat inspection system is up and running at two of Otter Tail Lake’s public accesses.

Called I-LIDS, the system provides a recorded message about aquatic invasive species prevention, audible within a range of 20 feet, to vehicle operators as they approach.

As boaters drive by the I-LIDS, they hear an educational message reminding them to clean off weeds and any other evidence of aquatic invasive species as they take their boats in and out of the lake.

Using motion sensors, the devices capture videos of boats and trailers, which get transferred over the internet to a remote server, where they are processed and made available on a website for review.

I-LIDS have proven to be a cost effective tool to protect lakes. In Lake Minnetonka, I-LIDS have helped reduce the number of boats that launch with weeds attached from 7.4 percent to .3 percent.
