CPLA needs Lake Host Inspectors to conduct courtesy boat inspections at the Newton town boat ramp this summer. 

Lake Host Inspectors

Inspectors are stationed at the boat ramp to help prevent invasive species from being introduced into the  lake by performing courtesy boat and trailer inspections. They educate the public on aquatic invasive species and how to prevent their spread by arriving "Cleaned, Drained and Dry". Visitors to the boat ramp recognize Lake Host Inspectors as someone ‘official’ who are cooperative and friendly. For this reason, all Lake Hosts are required to be in uniform (wearing the blue shirt or sweatshirt and a smile) while on duty at the boat ramp.


Lake Host Inspectors do not enforce local or state ordinances, rules, or laws. They provide boaters with courtesy information about the laws in a nonthreatening manner, they do not enforce boater adherence to laws; deny boater access to the waterbody; or threaten to report them for any potential violations.


Lake Hosts can be either volunteers or paid employees.  No prior experience is needed - training will be provided by NH LAKES.


For more information on the Lake Host program, please visit the NH LAKES website, https://nhlakes.org/lake-host/
