Boat Cleaning Stations

DCIST has installed four boat cleaning stations at the most popular boat launches

These stations aim to support citizen efforts to halt the spread of AIS and comply with Wisconsin law. AIS are non-native plants, animals, or pathogens associated with waterbodies that may cause environmental or economic harm. Wisconsin law requires boaters to inspect and remove all attached plants and animals prior to and after launching. According to Wisconsin DNR, Door County has 12 AIS documented, these species include quagga mussels, curly-leaf pondweed, viral hemorrhagic septicemia, and mystery banded snail.
