BEND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon marine regulators are looking to cut down on long-term boat mooring in Jefferson County waterways.

The Bulletin reports (https://is.gd/pvsdED ) that the Oregon State Marine Board is seeking comments on proposed rules for boats moored in Jefferson County lakes that would require vessels to move after a month.

The board has proposed changing the rules to prevent long-term mooring at the county’s request.

Officials say the proposal is intended to stop boats from being left unattended and to make sure all users have unrestricted access to water.

The rules call for moving a boat after 30 days in one location. The new location would need to be at least a half a mile away, and the boat cannot return to its previous spot for 30 days.
