Champlain, N.Y. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection today announced a delay in the opening of the Rouses Point, N.Y. boat inspection station located at the junction point of the Richelieu River in Quebec and the northwest corner of Lake Champlain.
The boat inspection station was scheduled to be opened April 29, but will be delayed until further notice due to high water levels in the inspection station area.

In the event boaters report for inspection outside of this timeframe, they should contact the Champlain Port of Entry at (518) 298-8346.
