Vermont’s Wake Boat Rule – First in Nation

A free virtual event sponsored by the Federation of Vermont Lakes and Ponds and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, Watershed Management Division, Lakes and Ponds Program.

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 will describe how this rule will be rolled out by Vermont DEC, including outreach to lake users and enforcement officials. It will also feature activities of lake associations preparing for this rollout and others that are preparing new petitions to strengthen restrictions on specific lakes.

This seminar will be held online, hosted via Zoom.
