Boat Landing Inspections Suspended Due to COVID-19

Upon the enactment of Governor Evers’s “Stay at Home” order in late March, state agencies took steps to protect staff and the public from the coronavirus in Wisconsin.  Their efforts included suspending boat inspections conducted by the WDNR’s Clean Boats, Clean Waters (CBCW) program at public boat landings.  The WDNR hopes to begin inspections again in June.  Until then, if you take your boat to a lake with public access, please exercise care in removing aquatic “hitchhikers” from your boat, trailer and other equipment before entering the water.
