SWANTON, Md. (AP) - The Deep Creek Lake Policy and Review Board is getting updates on some issues affecting users of the lake in far western Maryland.

The agenda for Monday’s meeting in Swanton includes a presentation about personal watercraft restrictions and a discussion of lake water levels.

The board appointed a subcommittee in January to study the current prohibition on personal watercraft use from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on summer weekends.

Opponents say the rules confuse tourists and make boat-rental businesses seem unfriendly.

Any recommendation by the board would go to the state Department of Natural Resources, which regulates boating on the lake.



The discussion of lake water levels stems partly from a desire by whitewater enthusiasts for a more stable flow of water from the lake into the Youghiogheny (yah-kah-GAY’-nee) River.
