Notice to Mariners
Cayuga Seneca Canal – Seneca Lake
August 16, 2018
Mariners are advised that due to recent high flows into Seneca Lake, an inordinate amount of debris is expected to be encountered. This can result in dangerous boating conditions. Mariners still needing to transit this body of water are strongly encouraged to do so off-plane at trawling speeds with an auxiliary lookout. Recreational tow sports (waterskiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, etc.) are highly discouraged at this time.
At all times mariners are encouraged to wear personal floatation devices (PFDs), but even more so during times of potentially hazardous conditions.
