Itasca County Aquatic Invasive Species: Working with Dock Installers & Lake Service Providers


So what are lake service providers?  These are the area businesses that rent trailers and lake equipment, put in docks and boats and are for hire at area lakes. There equipment, unless handled by certified providers, could carry Aquatic Invasives from lake to lake.  Itasca County has a new program - the Five Star Program.

FiveStar providers are DNR-certified, sign a contract agreeing to apply additional specified AIS best-practices and safeguards when moving from one lake or river to another, and are eager to earn your business.

Check here for AIS certified lake service providers.
