The NLPA worked with the East Tennessee Environmental Educators (ETEE) to install two signs near the Sunset Bay Marina. One sign is located at the entrance to the boat ramp and the other near the entrance onto the Sunset Bay marina. The signs have information about invasive species and how you can help stop the spread of invasive species in lakes. Inspecting and properly cleaning your watercraft before and after you put it in the lake is vital to keeping the lake free of invasive species. It is important that you also make sure any visitors you have who bring their watercraft to the lake also understand these guidelines. It takes all of us to do our part to help keep the lake clean and allow everyone to enjoy it for years to come.
The signs were designed and installed by the East Tennessee Environmental Educators (ETEE) and the Norris Lake Protection Alliance (NLPA). They were paid for through a grant obtained by the ETEE from the East Tennessee Development District.
