Fulton County Soil & Water is committed to keeping our local waters protected from invasive species.  That's why we are working with local lake associations to try and protect our lakes from Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS). Our goal is to educate the public and keep AIS out of the lakes that have not been invaded yet and to help reduce the transfer in and out of the ones that have. Currently, Canada Lake is free of all AIS while Caroga Lake has Eurasian Watermilfoil. This past year a boat inspection/wash station was constructed on State Route 10 between Caroga and Canada Lakes. Lake stewards man the station to help walk through an equipment inspection and if needed disinfect (hot water pressure wash) equipment that doesn’t meet inspection standards. A typical inspection is quick and will ensure our lakes stay clean of aquatic invaders.
