2018 Boating Regulation Changes

The following changes to the Rules and Regulations are taking affect for the 2018 boating season and will be enforced.

After June 1 of any year, any boats or personal water craft (powered or non-powered) traveling on the water or in the water including tied to a dock/shoreline, without a current boat sticker will be issued an automatic $50.00 citation.  A second offense will result in the loss of boating privileges for the remainder of the year. (Amended June 2017)

Boats may not be operated on Lake Stonycreek with additional ballast or a mechanical means to create a larger wake.  This includes factory and aftermarket bags, tanks and or other means of adding weight to increase wake size.  This regulation does not restrict any type of wake sport as long as the standard boat wake size is not enhanced. (Adopted July 2017)

Lastly, boat permit fees are changing to include the distinction of gas powered boats and non gas powered boats.  Therefore the fees for a  Primary Gas Powered Boat (pontoon boats, speed boats, jet skies, and boats with gas powered trolling motors) – $100.00
