The spread of quagga and zebra mussels are treated as a serious matter in Utah and the Division of Wildlife Resources wants travelers to know that inspection stations will be open this weekend and anyone with a watercraft are required to stop. A watercraft includes motorboats, sailboats, jet skis, wave runners, canoes, kayaks, float tubes, trailers and vehicles that go into the water on a boat ramp, as well as other personal watercraft. “Basically, if it floats, it’s a boat,” says Scott Dalebout, the DWR statewide operations lieutenant. “Anyone transporting any watercraft is required to stop at these mandatory inspection stations.” The stations for coming in and out of the Uintah Basin are located at the Daniels Canyon point of entry on Highway 40, Flaming Gorge, and the possibility of other checkpoints at state parks. The DWR reminds those traveling with watercraft that if you choose not to stop, these violations are addressed aggressively.
