Boaters Urged to Use Caution Due to Debris on Clear Lake

LAKE COUNTY, CA (January 15, 2019) – Boaters are advised to use extra caution due to debris in Clear Lake.  Stormwater runoff from recent rains has washed trees and other floating debris into the lake.

Some logs may appear small on the surface, but could be mostly submerged. Lake County Water Resources Department advises boaters to maintain a safe speed and keep a clear line of vision ahead of their vessel, especially during dusk and dawn when light is limited.
The Water Resources Department will patrol the lake and remove hazardous floating debris. However, boaters should remain alert and aware of their surroundings as more rain and debris flow is expected.

Please contact the Lake County Water Resources Department at (707) 263-2344 if you have questions or concerns regarding this topic.


Water Faucet
Urgent Health Advisory

Effective immediately, people on private water systems whose tap water comes from their own private intake into the lake, in the Oaks Arm and Lower Arm of Clear Lake should not drink the water.
