Meeting set Saturday to discuss horspower limit increase request at Charles Mill Lake

November 2, 2010

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources' Division of Watercraft in coordination with the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) will host a public meeting this weekend to discuss a public request to increase the horsepower limit for boat motor engines operated on Charles Mill Lake.

The meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to noon in the activity center at Pleasant Hill Lake Park located at 3431 Rt. 95 at Perrysville.

A petition was presented earlier this year to the Division of Watercraft and the MWCD that requested that the horsepower limit on Charles Mill Lake be increased from 10 horsepower to 30 horsepower.

A video documenting boats of various horsepower traveling on a lake has been produced by the Division of Watercraft and can be viewed as part of this press release by clicking on the icon included.

Comments about the proposal also may be sent in writing to: Chief, ODNR Division of Watercraft, 2045 Morse Rd., Building A, Columbus, OH 43229.
