    No Horsepower Limit Changes for Piedmont, Clendening Lakes


    No changes will be made to the current horsepower limits for boat motors operating on Clendening and Piedmont lakes.

    The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) announced today that the horsepower limit of 10 hp on each lake will remain in effect.

    A petition presented last year to ODNR's Division of Watercraft and the MWCD requested that the horsepower limits on both lakes be increased to 25 hp. Clendening and Piedmont lakes are MWCD lakes managed in partnership with the Division of Watercraft.

    Public meetings were held at each lake in May to accept comments about the petition request, and a powerboat demonstration using several different boat motors was conducted at Clendening Lake by the Division of Watercraft. Written comments were accepted through mid-July.

    Clendening Lake is located in Harrison County and Piedmont Lake is located in portions of Belmont, Guernsey and Harrison counties.

    Details about each lake can be found at www.mwcdlakes.com.

    Thanks you Rodger for the update on this! Wonder what their reason was not to raise the HP?

    I tell ya one good think about a 10 horse limit is that it keeps alot of the pleasure boaters of the lake. To get to the other side of the lake from the marina on a pontoon takes forever!
