Buoys Mark Shallow Water on Clear Lake

To promote safe boating conditions in Clear Lake, the Lake County Department of Water Resources recently placed white warning buoys along the shore near Rodman Slough to mark shallow areas of water that boaters should avoid. Even though Clear Lake is doing better than many lakes and reservoirs in the state, the drought has caused lower than usual water levels. Officials want boaters to beware that areas that were easilly navigated last year, may be hazordous this year because of the lower levels.
