Temporary Ban On Personal Watercraft Use
On September 15, 2002 personal watercraft (PWC) use will be prohibited on the waters of
Lakes Mead and Mohave. This is in compliance with the court-approved settlement agreement
of a lawsuit brought by the Bluewater Network against the National Park Servide.
In order to allow PWC use to resume, the settlement agreement requires that Lake Mead
National Recreation Area prepare an Environmental Impact Statement and a special regulation.
This process is expected to be completed as early as the spring of 2003. When the temporary
ban is lifted, Lake Mead National Recreation Area will honor the 2002 personal watercraft
lake use stickers throughout 2003.
