Boaters in Windsor will have to stay further away from the shore after the Windsor Port Authority issued an order to limit boat wakes and soil erosion as much as possible.

The Port Authority says they have enacted a traffic control zone that requires all ships as defined by the Canada Marine Act to remain no less than 61 meters or 200 feet from the shoreline extending from the Town of Tecumseh/ City of Windsor border to the Town of Lasalle/City of Windsor border.

Last year, the Windsor Port Authority enacted a 30-metre buffer zone for boats in the Detroit River moving along Windsor’s shoreline.

The Windsor Police Marine Unit will enforce the buffer.
