The stations will be in operation Memorial Day weekend and continue throughout the summer.
Quagga mussels are spreading in Lake Powell and have also been detected in Lake Mead.
Mandatory inspection stations are located at the following areas:
- The Interstate 15 point of entry near St. George. All watercraft traveling north on I-15 must stop.
- The Daniels Canyon point of entry along U.S. Highway 40, just southeast of Heber City (near mile marker 22). Only vehicles that are traveling up the canyon with watercraft – southwest, out of Heber City and Provo – need to stop. Vehicles with watercraft traveling the opposite way down the canyon toward Heber City are not required to stop.
- In Garden City and Laketown near Bear Lake. All watercraft traveling to Bear Lake must stop.
In addition to the inspection stations, DWR officers and biologists also conduct administrative checkpoints along traffic routes that lead out of the Bullfrog and Wahweap marina areas at Lake Powell.
