Four New Decontamination Stations Provided Free of Charge by NDOW

AIS Decontaminatino Station
It’s warmer boating weather and time to head to the water! NDOW is providing four new decontamination stations scheduled to open this Memorial Day weekend.


The four stations are located at Lahontan Reservoir (Silver Spring State Park entrance and near the dam area off U.S. 50), Rye Patch Reservoir (at the park boat ramp area on the west side of the lake) and Wildhorse Reservoir at the Wildhorse Resort: less than one mile south of the reservoir.
Decontamination and inspections will be free of charge due to federal grants and the implementation of Nevada’s new AIS prevention decal.

Boaters are advised to come early and expect slight launch delays for the inspections. The inspection process will proceed faster if vessels come completely CLEAN, DRAINED AND DRY (no water in the bilge, drains, etc.)
