DENVER - Boat ramps are now open seven days a week at the Antero Reservoir.
The north boat ramp is open seven days a week from one half-hour before sunrise to one half-hour after sunset. The south boat ramp is open Fridays through Mondays.
All trailered boats will be inspected for aquatic nuisance species by Colorado Parks and Wildlife prior to entering the water. The inspections are free.
Species such as zebra and quagga mussels pose a high threat of spreading to other reservoirs and waterways, Denver Water says. The invasive species can clog pipes, valves, gates and any water system-related equipment.
To shorten inspection times, Denver Water ask boaters to make sure that boats and trailers are cleaned, drained and dried after every use.
