Lake Host Program to Run Again this Summer at Lake Potanipo Boat Ramp

-A A +A

To help reduce the spread of invasive plants and further educate boaters, the "Lake Host" Program will be running again this summer at the boat ramp on Lake Potanipo.  Lake Hosts will be present to ensure boaters:

  1. Clean off all hitchhiking fragments of plants, animals, and debris on the outside of their boat before entering or leaving the launch area (this applies to invasive and native species)
  2. Drain their boats before leaving the ramp (this includes paddle craft and non-motorized boats)
  3. Open/remove drain plugs while trailering (if the vessel is equipped with drain plugs).

The requirement to drain all boats is part of a new NH law that went into effect at the beginning of 2017.
