Boating season is right around the corner, which means the Ohio Department of Natural Resources is conducting vessel saftey checks.

As part of "National Safe Boating Week", people brought their boats to the Riverside Ramp on the Muskingum River to have them inspected by a State Watercraft Officer. Boats must be registered and contain a certain number of lifejackets. Another safety check will take place Sunday, May 20th at the Marina Ramp on Dillon Lake from 10am until noon.
