Weigh in on proposed boating rules

Created: 01/10/2014 9:31 AM WHEC.com

If you want to boat, canoe or kayak this summer, you might have to take some extra steps before getting into the water.

The state Department of Conservation is proposing new rules to keep invasive species out of waters. The rules would require you to clean and drain boats and boat trailers at DEC administered launch sites. If you don’t, you could be fined up to $250.

You can comment on the proposal through February 24. Click here for more information.
