(What you Can and Can't Do in public waters)

The best way to prevent problems in public or private water bodies is with prevention. Don't put any nonnative plants, fish, pets or other organisms into any waterbody. Check boat trailers, boat hulls and propellers. Rinse and remove aquatic plants or invertebrate hitchhikers such as snails. Don't dump aquarium contents in lakes, channels or other water bodies. Replace invasive and other non-native plants in your yard with native species.
