Press Release - Sheriff issues boater advisory
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
06-15-2015 - Seneca County Sheriff Jack Stenberg has issued a boater advisory for both Seneca and Cayuga Lakes and the Seneca-Cayuga Canal. Recent heavy rains have increased the amount of runoff emptying into the lakes and canal. Boaters are urged to use extreme caution for partially submerged logs, stumps and other materials. Sheriff Stenberg also requests boaters to reduce their wakes along shorelines to prevent further damage to docks and private property. Water levels on Cayuga are extremely high and I am urging boaters there to exercise caution and reduce their wakes to protect property.
