Solano County

Boating programs come ashore this month

By From page A1 | August 03, 2014

LAKE BERRYESSA — Various boater outreach events will take place during August at Lake Berryessa and at Rio Vista along the Sacramento River.

Stations to help boaters change bilge pads will operate each weekend Aug. 15 through Labor Day. The Lake Berryessa stations will be at Markley Cove, Steele Canyon and Capell Cove and the Rio Vista station at the county’s Sandy Beach Park.

Bilge pad are small, oil absorbent pillows placed in the bilge of an inboard motor. After a season of boating, they fill up with engine oil and fluid and need to be recycled.

In addition, the Solano Resource Conservation District will offer boater focus groups, so boaters can give feedback on the boating programs. One will be Aug. 23 at Lake Berryessa and the other Aug. 24 in Rio Vista. Contact Mike Gordon at [email protected] or 678-1655, ext. 122, for details and to register to participate.
