A Boaters Advisory has been issued by Schuyler County Sheriff William Yessman Jr. and for Seneca Lake, Waneta Lake, Lamoka Lake and Cayuta Lake in Schuyler County.

Yates County Sheriff Ron Spike has also issued a Boating Advisory for Seneca Lake, especially in the towns of Milo and Starkey, where assorted debris has been washed into the lake.

"Due to the recent rains there is a large amount of debris floating and submerged in the

lakes. Lake levels are also higher than usual, causing damage to docks and shoreline properties. Boaters are reminded that they are responsible for damage caused by their boat's wake," says Yessman.
