Prevention Protocols Protocol for Working Outdoors in Water 1.  Bring back-ups 2.  Minimize contact •  Sample from least to most invasive species-contaminated areas. •  Minimize wading and avoid running boats onto sediment. For example, use bank sampling poles instead of wading. •  Use a catch pan underneath dredges, etc., to keep potential invasive species off boat decks and out of bilges. 3.  Clean, drain, dry 4.  If possible, decontaminate
