‘No Wake’ buoys proposed for Dymer Creek

by Audrey Thomasson

LANCASTER—Residents of Dymer Creek don’t like boats traveling at high speeds and causing bank erosion and damage to residents’ piers and boats, according to one resident.

At last week’s board of supervisors meeting, David Herndon asked for a public hearing to establish a “no wake” zone for the creek off Fleets Bay.

“Many of the landowners and residents of Dymer Creek have requested that ‘no wake’ buoys be placed at the beginning of the narrow portion of the creek and also well into the western section to slow down boats and reduce the environmental and property damage caused by these large wakes,” said Herndon, who is chairman of the boating safety committee of the Dymer Creek Environmental Preservation Association.
