Volusia County, FL – Work will soon be underway to replace and repair waterway markers for state manatee protection zones.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced that they plan on improving signs that mark state mandated manatee protection zones and restricted boating areas.
FWC calls the work “routine” maintenance as they replace the degraded waterway signs in the existing boundaries of the protection zones.
Some of these areas include popular waterways in the county such as the Halifax River, Indian River Lagoon and the Tomoka River.
Boaters are being urged to use caution, particularly in narrow waterway, while the project is underway.
The work will begin sometime next month and is expected to be completed in four to six weeks.
