Mandatory Boat Inspection Required 

The Town of Truckee has passed an Ordinance requiring mandatory inspections on all motorized and/or trailered watercraft, and other watercraft having water ballast tanks, prior to launching into Donner Lake. Inspections are to help prevent the introduction of Aquatic Invasive Species into the lake. After a successful inspection, the watercraft owner/operator must purchase a program sticker.
