Help Protect Chestermere Lake
Aquatic Invasive Species are plants and animals (mussels) that can infest our lake, damage pumps and irrigation systems, and clog boat props. If you launch your boat in Chestermere, you will be asked to ensure your boat is not carrying these species. Learn more about what you can do to protect our lake at www.chestermere.ca/ais.
If you have questions or concerns about the Boat Launch Fees or application, please call City Hall at (403) 207-7050.
