Even though the lakes are privately owned by the Association, the use of the lakes for fishing and boating is subject to the Fish and Boat Code and regulations of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission.
Association boat racks are designated only for use of Association Members in good standing. Assignments are seasonal and may be obtained at the Association office for a fee.
Boats may be powered by trolling electric motors. They must have a current valid Pennsylvania registration and display proper registration numbers on the hull of the boat.
Boats may not be powered by an internal combustion engine (motor). Even though such engines may be mounted on a boat, they may NOT be turned on or utilized for power while on Emerald Lakes Community lakes.
All boats must stay clear of designated swimming areas. Diving and/or swimming off boats and bridges are prohibited.
The owner of a boat shall be held responsible for the actions of the operators and occupants of the boat.
Any use of the lakes shall be at the risk of the owner or operator of the boat.
Violations of these boating rules may result in loss of privileges and/or Association imposed fines. Violations of state law may also subject the Member to prosecution by State Authorities.
