PWC in shallow water kicking up sediment

Protect the shoreline from erosion, and preserve aquatic vegetation.

  • Reduce throttle to “no wake” speed when close to a shoreline or in small rivers to help prevent erosion.
  • Don’t operate in shallow water where your prop or pump intake can stir up bottom sediments and destroy aquatic plants.
  • Drain the bilge and clean the prop before leaving a waterway. Failure to do so may transport plants or animals from one waterway to another and disrupt the natural balance of the environment.
