Clean Boats Clean Waters (CBCW)

Clean Boats, Clean Waters is a watercraft inspection program intended to educate boaters on aquatic invasive species and how to prevent their spread between lakes.  Inspectors work at public boat landings and talk to boaters about prevention procedures to stop aquatic hitchhikers.

Clean Boats, Clean Waters is a cooperative effort between the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources: http://dnr.wi.gov/lakes/CBCW/ , the University of Wisconsin Extension:www.uwsp.edu/cnr/uwexlakes/cbcw , and the inspectors who work to make the program a success.

The VVLA started a volunteer effort at the landing in the summer of 2009.  Since 2013, the association has also partnered with Big Lake on a WDNR grant to obtain 50 hours of inspections at our landing each summer using college student interns.
