Offer input on Willamette boat rules
The Oregon State Marine Board is accepting written public comment on proposed rule changes to boat operations on the Willamette River in the Newberg Pool.
The board directed staff to draft rules at its Jan. 22 meeting held in Salem.
The proposed rules would amend regulations on the Willamette River between river miles 30 and 50 to restrict wake surfing in multiple areas and define other areas in which all towed watersports, except wake surfing, would be prohibited.
Additionally, the public can provide testimony on the proposed rules at a public hearing from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 9. The hearing will be held at the Marine Board office, 435 Commercial St. NE, Suite 400, in Salem.
