Free Boat Decontamination
Encourage to first take their craft to the DNR certified decontamination station on County Rd 6 near the Park Rapids transfer station — especially boats and jet skis coming from regions with infested waters. This includes Lake Minnetonka, Mille Lacs, Leech, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois and many other locations. This is the best way to help ensure that boats coming into Fishhook are not spreading AIS. The station is located in the building between the detail shop and transfer station. Entrance is right before the transfer station gate.
Scheduled hours are:
Fridays from 4pm-8pm and
Saturdays from Noon-6pm through August 30th.
The decontamination station is also available on an on-call basis —
Monday-Friday 218-732-0121; Weekends/Evenings 218-252-6738.
The following reports are the results of the AIS boat inspections in 2013
