New boat restrictions take effect on Upstate lakes
GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Before you hit the lake, make sure you know the new restrictions!
Governor Henry McMaster signed a law on Mar. 14 increasing the distance limit for boating near a dock, swimmer or anchored vessel to 100 feet for most state waters. This doubles the previous distance of 50 feet.
The new law applies to the following Upstate lakes: Lake Greenwood, Lake Hartwell, Lake Jocassee, Lake Keowee, Lake Robinson, Lake Succession and Lake Russell.
The law also bans wake surfing on all South Carolina waters within 200 feet of a dock, a person in the water or an anchored watercraft.
