The Windsor Port Authority has authorized a temporary 30 day buffer zone of 30 meters for all motorized watercraft moving along the Windsor shoreline of the Detroit River.  This means no motorized watercraft can operate within 30 meters of shore unless docking.  “Historic high water levels have forced us to take extraordinary action to prevent on-shore damage to property along our waterfront” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens.  “Water levels are expected to continue to rise through August which means the situation is likely to get worse before it gets better”. The 30 meter zone takes effect immediately. “We are dealing with historic high waters’ crisis, not a shipping issue.  But still, by imposing a 30 meter ban we are asking all pleasure craft to be good neighbours and stay away from the shoreline property owners that are dealing with significant pressures”. Steve Salmons, President and CEO, Windsor Port Authority A postcard educating boaters of the 30 meter ban will be handed out at boating locations across the city and by the Windsor Police Marine Unit.  Social media and traditional media will also be counted on to help spread the word as quickly as possible. The Windsor Police Marine Unit will be tasked with enforcing the 30 meter zone but education is the focus. The 30 meter ban is the latest effort by the City of Windsor aimed at protecting properties from the extreme water levels.  A free sandbag program remains in place for a section of homes along the north side of Riverside Drive. Details on the sandbag program and more can be found on www.citywindsor.ca
