Resources has proposed to amend the current 6 Knot (6.9 MPH) speed limit for
Saturdays, Sundays and State holidays for a portion of Main Creek. The

All Times during the Boating Season only (April 15 through October 15) and 6
knots Saturday, Sunday, and State Holidays from October 16th through April
14th. The current regulation 6 knots Saturday, Sunday, and State Holidays
will remain if effect for the rest of Main Creek; this proposal is being
made on behalf of boating safety.
