Safety and stewardship on Oconee lakes
Memorial Day marks the traditional start of the summer recreation season. Duke Energy encourages everyone to practice safety while boating and enjoying other activities on lakes Keowee and Jocassee. Everyone can make a difference by knowing and following all state-required safety rules and guidelines for boat operations, and ensuring each boat has the required safety equipment for the number of occupants and activities planned. Duke reminds people that overnight camping, fires, littering, removal of any vegetation and permanent structures are strictly prohibited on any of the lakes’ public recreation access areas, islands or along the shoreline.
