SPREAD THE WORD NOT THE PLANTS!
EVERY TIME YOU PUT YOUR WATERCRAFT IN THE WATER, FIRST
- INSPECT the watercraft, trailer and equipment
- REMOVE all debris and discard in the garbage
- CLEAN the places where plants could attach
- EMPTY any water at least 30 m from a lake or river
WASHING ALL WATERCRAFT: IT’S THE LAW!
Every sailboat and motorboat must be washed, every time, before being put into Mont-Tremblant’s lakes and rivers, to prevent the spread of invasive plants such as Eurasian water-milfoil.
Make an appointment with a washing facility certified by the City. It will provide a certificate valid for 24 hours for one body of water.
REGULATION ON WASHING WATERCRAFT
Before launching a motorized watercraft (internal combustion or electric) into the water, users must by law have it washed at a certified washing facility and obtain a certificate (sticker) to that effect recognized by the City. The watercraft trailer must also be washed before the launch and after the watercraft exits the water.
Washing of sailboats is also required.
Before launching a non-motorized watercraft (e.g., kayak, stand-up paddle board, canoe), users must carefully inspect it, wash it at least 30 metres from the river or lake, and remove any organism (animal or vegetable) on the hull, trailer, or any equipment related to the non-motorized watercraft.
