Watercraft decontamination is a free service provided by Hubbard County. Decontamination is an important step in preventing the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species. The Hubbard County decontamination station is staffed by trained and certified Level II Watercraft Inspectors. The decontamination process consists of three possible components; hand removal, hot water treatment, and high-pressure treatment. If there are plants or mussels attached to a boat they can be removed by hand or with high-pressure water. Any organisms that may be too small to see can be killed by flushing with hot water 100-140°F.

The Hubbard County decontamination station is located at:
