Aquatic Invasive Species Inspections Required

The IVGID Boat Ramp at Ski Beach has been following the TRPA Code Amendments that require all boats entering Lake Tahoe be inspected and sealed by a Certified Invasive Species Inspector. IVGID is determined to do its part to try and keep Quagga Mussels, Zebra Mussels, New Zealand Mud Snails and other aquatic invasive species out of Lake Tahoe. Please visit www.TahoeBoatInspections.com for inspection locations, hours, fees, etc.
