30 Meter Buffer Imposed along Windsor Shoreline

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.

The 30 meter ban is 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.

“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”.

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.

The Windsor Police Marine Unit will be tasked with enforcing the 30 meter zone but education is the focus.
