The sheriff’s office reports current high water conditions plus unnecessary wakes can create the potential to damage shorelines, docks and lifts, and even residences.

Additionally, the sheriff’s office reminded boaters that all access parking rules are still in effect and parking is prohibited where there are signs to indicate restricted parking.
