c=cartop; r=regulated.

2 – E=Eurasian Watermilfoil; Z=Zebra Mussel;

Aquatic nuisance species (ANS) spread prevention practices should always be employed when visiting ANY waterbody, regardless of whether a known infestation is present. Invasive species and/ or fish diseases could be present but as yet undetected. ANS may be present in other waterbodies and not yet detected. Please follow the recommendations on to help stop the  spread of ANS.
