Boater Advisory

Sheriffs’ Marine patrols reporting that with the heavy rains this week combined with today’s downpour many creeks and gulley’s that empty into the Seneca and Cayuga Lakes have washed assorted debris into the lakes, and they can be a floating hazard to navigation. Boaters are cautioned to be observant of floating tree limbs, branches, logs, misc. debris in the water.

A reminder that it’s the NYS Navigation Law on Cayuga and Seneca Lake to be no more than 5 mph boating within 100 feet of shore. Any hidden obstructions will likely be inside those distances.
