Lake Vermilion Watercraft Inspectors Sought for 2016 Season

The North St Louis Soil and Water Conservation District (NSLSWCD) and the Sportsmen’s Club of Lake Vermilion are jointly seeking watercraft inspectors for the 2016 boating season.

The SWCD will be hiring 12 to 25 part-time and full-time temporary employees for aquatic invasive species (AIS) inspection assignments at Lake Vermilion’s public and private launches. “The inspectors will be greeting boaters, checking boats entering and exiting the lake for AIS, and teaching boaters how to self-inspect their watercraft,” said Anita Provinzino, District Administrator.

“We’re seeking enthusiastic folks from young adults, who are looking for a seasonal job this summer, to retirees with a little extra time,” said Jeff Lovgren, Lake Vermilion AIS prevention leader. “A key requirement is a passion for protecting Lake Vermilion.”

The work assignments run from early May through October, but applicants do not have to be available for the entire period. The DNR will begin conducting training classes in April. Inspectors will be paid $12.50 per hour and will work 20-40 hours per week.
