National Clean Drain Dry British Columbia Pilot
Agency: Invasive Species Council of British Columbia
Location: British Columbia
Treatment Method Used:
The Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC) has undertaken a pilot project designed to support BC's freshwater sustainability through the prevention of the introduction of aquatic invasive species, particularly invasive Zebra and Quagga mussels. Over a three-year pilot term, funded by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and under contract to the Canadian Council on Invasive Species, ISCBC will develop resources, signage and a social and digital media campaign. These resources will be designed to shift the behaviour of boaters and aquatic recreationists to encourage the practice of Clean, Drain and Dry (CDD) of all watercraft and equipment. Resources developed through this pilot project will provide the foundation for their use nationally and will be available to other partners, organizations and the public across Canada.
