CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — With the summer boating season ramping up, regulators at Lake Tahoe will be inspecting watercraft for aquatic invasive species.

Roadside inspection stations open Thursday at Meyers, Spooner Summit and Alpine Meadows. Those locations will operate 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. seven days a week.

Another station at Northstar opens May 22 and will operate Thursdays through Sundays.

Inspection fees vary depending on the size of the watercraft.

A Tahoe "in-and-out" sticker ranges from $35 for personal watercraft and vessels less than 17 feet long, up to $121 for larger boats.

The "Tahoe only" sticker for boats that will remain at the lake is $30.

An additional $35 fee is charged for any boat requiring decontamination.

Inspections are designed to prevent quagga mussels and other invasive species from entering the lake.
