Boaters Urged to Be Cautious Due to Debris on Clear Lake
An Urgent and Important Message from Lake County Water Resources Department
Lake County, CA (January 25, 2023, Updated January 26, 2023) – Boaters are advised to use extra caution due to debris in Clear Lake. Stormwater runoff from recent rains has washed trees and other floating debris into the lake.
Some logs may appear small on the surface, but could be mostly submerged. Lake County Water Resources Department advises boaters to maintain a safe speed and keep a clear line of vision ahead of their vessel, especially during dusk and dawn when light is limited.
Lake County Marine Patrol is working diligently to address debris causing navigation hazards. However boaters are advised to use extreme caution when boating around Clear Lake.
To report a navigation hazard, please complete this online survey.
The survey can also be accessed using the QR code included in the image associated with this release.
