This year, between May 29 and July16, there have been nine incidents involving boats or Jet Ski's that have ignored the warning buoys and signage located in the upper Niagara River, near the New York State Power Authority water intakes.
Boat and Jet Ski operators are responsible for knowing the area they are operating in, being aware of natural and man-made hazards, and reviewing navigation charts prior to entering an area that they are unfamiliar.
