Motor Boat Ban To Include Two More Area Lakes

Canandaigua, NY -- Add two more lakes to the motor boat ban announced Wednesday for Keuka Lake.

Effective at 8 a.m. Friday, the ban will include Canandaigua and Honeoye lakes.

The Ontario County sheriff's office says both lakes are still at higher than normal levels, and the increased boat traffic usually associated with the holiday weekend could create a hazardous situation.

The debris floating in the lakes includes dock parts, trees and submerged obstructions. Barricades will be placed at public boat launches, and marine patrols will enforce the ban throughout the weekend.
