Lake Zoar Marine Patrol cite boaters for dozens of violations in Aug.

For the month of August, the Lake Zoar Marine Patrol made 7 rounds on the water.  There were a total of 73 enforcements, with the majority of violations being passengers without personal floatation devices, unregistered vessels, and drivers without a safe boating certificate.  18 vessels were towed last month for breakdowns. Three of the 7 patrols were on Tuesday evenings during Oxford concerts. The last concert had more than 80 boats in attendance and there were some violations enforced. The Lake Zoar Authority also held a safety check point at the Southbury boat launch, with 20 vessels inspected. Patrol drivers have been marking a lot of debris and trees along the lake. Photos were taken and sent to FirstLight and debris is now being removed.  FirstLight has indicated they are willing to consider bill back for the patrol boats removing future debris on Lake Zoar, and will consider an increase in grant funding.
