As of July 1st, 2020 two new Aquatic Invasive Species laws went into effect for Utah boaters. First, all non-residents must take an online education course and pay a $20 fee before launching in Utah waters. Second, drain plugs now must be removed on all boats while transported in Utah. That includes both rear and center drain plugs. There is also a new definition for "complex boats." Now, all wakeboard boats with ballast tanks, or boats that have an inboard/outboard motor, and considered complex by the Utah DNR.
