Threat of Invasive Species to Temporarily Close Crater Lake to Scuba (Aug 28, 2012)
DOI. NPS. Crater Lake National Park.
To prevent the introduction of aquatic invasive species into the pristine waters of Crater Lake, Crater Lake National Park has issued an immediate, but temporary closure, prohibiting scuba diving and other use of water gear in the lake. This closure will remain in effect until protocols are established to minimize the risk of contamination from invasives. It is anticipated these protocols will be in place before the beginning of the 2013 season and will require divers to take precautionary measures before entering the lake.

Mandatory Boat Inspection Stations Open in Oregon to Target Invasive Species (Jun 4, 2012)
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Motorists hauling boats in Oregon are now required to stop at posted watercraft inspection stations to have their boats, paddlecraft and other watercraft inspected for aquatic invasive species. Inspection stations are operated by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife at Port of Entries, highway rest stops and boat ramps across the state. Failure to stop at an inspection station could result in a $110 fine. Motorists are alerted to inspections stations by orange "Boat Inspection Ahead" signs and followed by a white "Inspection Required for All Watercraft" sign. All vehicles carrying kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, sailboats and any other boats, non-motorized or motorized, are required to stop.
