Vermont’s new wake boat rule protects our lakes and reduces safety risk by confining wake sports to ‘wake sport zones’ in larger lakes defined by a 500’ shore buffer and a depth more than 20’. This seminar described how this rule will be rolled out by Vermont DEC, including outreach to lake users and enforcement officials. It also featured activities of lake associations preparing for this rollout.

PDFs of the presentations are all available here.
