After hearing concerns from law enforcement and safety agencies who respond to boating accidents, disabled vessels, and medical emergencies on Canyon Lake, WORD has taken on a project to aid boaters in knowing where they are on the lake during the day and at night. The project consists of two parts. First, a line of numbered buoys on the water stretching from west to east in the approximate center of the lake. These buoys are for informational purposes only and do not denote hazards or a clear channel, although they will be placed for the most part on the old river channel which is generally the deepest part of the lake.
The second part of the project is to place large reflective signage at every boat ramp around the lake facing out towards the water. This will aid people in both knowing where they are and finding the ramp they launched from. WORD expects this project to be completed by the first part of June. Read more
