Swimming and Boating
Watch your wake. Your boat can easily damage the river bed, disturb shoreline habitat and wash away the shoreline.
Carefully fuel your boat using proper containers and equipment. One drop of gasoline can contaminate large bodies of water for a long period of time. Do not discharge sewage from your boat into the water and clean the bottom of your boat in order not to transport invasive species from one lake to another.
When swimming, avoid using soap or shampoo in the water. These contain nitrates and other contaminants which can affect your drinking water source.
