CHECK NEW REGS, INSPECTIONS IN COLORADO: 2009 Season — Boaters should anticipate being inspected this year as new regulations designed to prevent the spread of zebra and quagga mussels take effect. All out-of-state boats and resident boats that go out-of-state and return to Colorado must pass a state-certified inspection for ANS prior to launching in any Colorado lake, reservoir or waterway. In addition, boats that have launched on any of the Colorado lakes or reservoirs where mussels have been detected are required to pass an inspection before launching at a new location. Boaters who have successfully passed a state-certified inspection will receive a green seal and receipt. Boaters must have both the seal and receipt in their possession before they may launch at a new location.
