Free sticker reminds boaters to check the drain plug
A bright-yellow warning sticker has been created by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to help remind boaters to "check their drain plug."
Invasive species regulations, which went into effect last year, now require boaters to remove the plug and drain the bilge and live well before transporting a watercraft. The DNR developed the sticker because some boaters forget to put their drain plug back in place before relaunching their boats.
