Sheriff Brian Schenck joined other law enforcement leaders in the region issuing a navigational advisory on lakes around Cayuga County.
Due to heavy rainfall lakes and waterways are running high- and debris is embedded in many of them. “Not only does this make navigation difficult and treacherous, but there is also a large amount of debris often undetectable from the surface,” Schenck said. “There are large trees and dock toppers which are sometimes difficult to see but would be very dangerous to boat traffic.”
He asked for everyone to use extreme caution if our on the water in the coming days.
“Please use extreme caution if you choose to be out on any of our waterways and in traveling be careful not to create a wake which can be destructive to property,” Sheriff Schenck added.
