If You Allow Others To Launch Boats
Given today’s litigious society, and given the high risks to the lake from invasive species, homeowners need to be very cautious. Homeowners may be liable for the behavior of others. Accidents, medical incidents, and environmental harm from the transmission of invasive species represent great risks to homeowners. Please make sure that any watercraft that has been on other lakes is properly cleaned as described below.
Be sure that boats entering Wall Lake have been cleaned as follows:
Inspect and remove any visible mud, plants, fish or animals before transporting your recreational equipment.
Drain water from equipment (boat, motor, trailer, live wells) before transporting it.
Dry equipment for at least 5 days.
Dispose of unwanted live bait in the trash.
Know the Law: Michigan laws prohibit placing a boat, trailer, or other boating equipment into Michigan waters with plant material attached.
