Boaters asked to stay farther away from shore due to erosion concerns
Press Release, Sheriff Randy Bower
Due to the high water levels on Lake Ontario, Orleans County Sheriff Randy Bower is asking boaters to stay as far away from the shoreline as possible.
We are concerned about shoreline erosion and submerged docks, as well as debris close to the shoreline. While State Navigation Law requires a 100-foot No Wake Zone, we ask all boaters to voluntarily observe a 500-foot No Wake Zone on Lake Ontario.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
