Our waterways are under threat from invasive aquatic species.
As a water user, you may unknowingly be helping to spread invasive species from one waterbody to another in equipment, shoes and clothing.
Help stop this happening by following these three simple steps: Check, Clean, Dry.
Check your equipment and clothing for living organisms
Pay particular attention to areas that are damp or hard to inspect
Clean and wash all equipment, footwear and clothes thoroughly
If you do come across any organisms, leave them at the waterbody where you found them
Dry all equipment and clothing: some species can live for several days in damp conditions
Make sure you don't transfer water elsewhere
