As we enter the tropical storm season, we are seeing the massive storm head toward the east coast and a tropical storm head into the gulf. I want to remind the homeowners of requirements regarding the storing of watercraft in their boathouses.
The District’s rules require that all boats be restricted, by either tie or obstruction, from floating outside the boathouse perimeter. Any boats found floating free will be removed from the lake at the owners expense.
The District’s rules also require that if a resident is away from their house for more than three days, boats stored in boathouses must be lifted and kept at their maximum height. Any obstruction (top, towers, etc.) that would prevent the boat from being raised as high as possible must be lowered or removed. Lake Patrol will be checking compliance with this rule and notice of violations will be issued for non-compliance.
We appreciate your attention to this as it is in everyones best interest to maintain control of watercraft during high water events and to prevent as much damage as possible.
