BALLAST BOATS: All boats with ballast tanks require decontamination. To save yourself time and money, please make sure that they are drained and dry before you arrive at the inspection station. Alpine, Truckee and Meyers inspection stations have better infrastructure to handle ballast boats (more hoses and water).  Please arrive before 5pm during the Summer to provide ample time for decontamination.
