Boaters Face New Rules On Willamette River

(Salem, OR) -- Boaters are facing new regulations on the Willamette River between the Yamhill River and Willamette Falls. The Oregon State Marine Board has approved new rules for towed watersports. Any boater towing someone now needs a special certification, and wake surfing is banned. Officials say the new rules are necessary because that section of the river is narrow, and there's often a lot of boats on the water.
