Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich recently spoke with the governor’s office regarding recreational activity on town of Greece ponds after receiving calls from concerned residents.
The same speeding restrictions apply to the ponds as they do the lake, because all ponds connect to Lake Ontario. Anyone participating in recreational activities on the pond should remember it is a no-wake area.
The following guidelines are related excerpts from town of Greece boating laws.
No vessel shall be operated within the channel of Braddock Bay in a manner or at a speed that unreasonably interferes with or endangers any vessel or person or that passes any vessel proceeding in the same direction, but in no event at a speed exceeding 5 mph.
No vessel shall be operated in Buttonwood Creek in a manner or at a speed that causes a wake that unreasonably interferes with or endangers a dock, pier, raft, floating object, anchored or moored vessel, swimmer or freshwater wetland feature, but in no event at a speed exceeding 5 mph.
No vessel shall be operated within 100 feet of the shore of Braddock Bay and Salmon Creek in a manner or at a speed that causes a wake that unreasonably interferes with or endangers a dock, pier, raft, floating object, anchored or moored vessel, swimmer or freshwater wetland feature, but in no event at a speed exceeding 5 mph.
No vessel shall be operated in Lake Ontario contiguous to the town of Greece within 200 feet of the shore, a dock, pier, raft, floating object or an anchored or moored vessel at a speed exceeding 5 mph.
