Seneca County sheriff urges 'extra caution' for boaters on Seneca, Cayuga Lakes

Seneca County Sheriff Tim Luce is announcing a Lake Level advisory for Seneca and Cayuga Lakes, along with the Seneca- Cayuga Canal.

Sheriff Luce reports that with the recent rain - the water levels are high and extra caution is needed for any boat traffic. As the weather gets warmer and people are getting back on the water- the Sheriff's Office is urging extra caution. Submerged logs and various debris pose an extra hazard for boaters. Until the water levels go down boaters are also advised to operate at a reduced speed so as not to create a wake that will damage other boats and docks etc.

Sheriff Luce reports that at this time there is not a ban on boat traffic but urges extra caution, the Sheriff's Office will be monitoring the situation.
