Help us keep Okanagan waters zebra and quagga mussel free! Help spread the message.
Have "the talk" with neighbours, friends and family.
If you know someone who boats, fishes and travels in and out of our valley with their boat or other water recreation equipment,
ask what they’re doing to help prevent the spread. Make sure they follow the "Clean, Drain, Dry" protocol.
Here’s how it works:
CLEAN off all plants, animals and mud from your boat and related equipment (e.g. boots, waders, fishing gear). If a power washing station is available, use it.
DRAIN (on dry land) any item that can hold water (e.g. buckets, wells, bilge and ballast).
DRY all items completely before launching the watercraft into another body of water.
