QUAGGA INSPECTION SERVICES is a vessel inspection program located in Santa Clara County. We currently operate at five boating reservoirs spanning nearly 50 miles. Coyote Reservoir in Gilroy, Anderson Reservoir in Morgan Hill, Calero Reservoir in San Jose, Lexington Reservoir in Los Gatos and Stevens Creek Reservoir in Cupertino each offer their own distinct scenery and boating activities.

In 2008 QIS identified the need for providing thorough inspection services in response to the growing concern of invasive aquatic species entering the lakes and rivers across the United States. With a fully infested lake a mere 27 miles from Santa Clara County Reservoirs, our endeavors to protect our local waterways are more important than ever.
