CULVER, OR -- The Oregon State Marine Board is considering a request to establish a "no wake zone" in a portion of Lake Billy Chinook.
The petition references the Fly Creek Inlet and would also prohibit unauthorized anchoring, mooring or beaching a boat in the Fly Creek Subdivision on Lake Billy Chinook, unless granted permission by private property owners. The request sites a need for the rule based on safety concerns, "Due to the proximity and quantity of permitted floating structures and underwater obstructions in the Fly Creek Inlet," according to the Board.
Written comments are allowed via email or by U.S. mail to: June LeTarte, Administrative Rules Coordinator, 435 Commercial Street NE, Suite 400, Salem, OR 97301. Following the close of the public comment period, the Board will meet on December 5 via teleconference from the Marine Board office in Salem to discuss the petition.
