Boaters asked to observe voluntary speed limit on Heffley Lake

HEFFLEY LAKE – High water is a concern to residents right now and with the long weekend upon us it’s doubly worrisome.

Long weekends mean more activity on the lake, including power boats and wakeboard boats, which cause potential damage to property when water is high. The Heffley Lake Community Association asked if there was a way to encourage boaters to take it easy so, after consulting with TNRD staff, I arranged for signage to be provided.

The signs warn boaters of the risk to wildlife as well as to property and ask for their cooperation in slowing down and following a “no-tow” rule until the lake level goes down.
