Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the latest action in New York's comprehensive efforts to prevent the spread of invasive species with the grand opening of the state's most advanced boat inspection and decontamination station at the recently completed Adirondacks Welcome Center on Interstate 87 in Queensbury, Warren County. The Welcome Center site is the first boat inspection station built into a highway rest stop in New York and is located at a critical entrance to the Adirondack Park that will help prevent the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species. This opening coincides with the yearly deployment of boat stewards and decontamination efforts at public boat launches across the state.
