The Lake George Park Commission announced Thursday evening that the mandatory boat inspection program will get underway on May 21.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the program was originally delayed until June 1, which was announced earlier this month.
Traditionally, the program has started on May 1.
The Lake George Park Commission also announced it will not be selling registration stickers at inspection stations and they must be purchased beforehand online at http://lgpc.mybigcommerce.com/buy-boat-registrations-here/.
Boaters are still required to have a Lake George boat registration sticker for 2020, and all boats still must arrive at Lake George “clean, drained and dry."
Last year, 33,146 boats were inspected at six inspection stations. Inspectors determined 1,438 boats required decontamination.
The inspection program began in 2014 after invasive Asian clams were found in the lake.
