Oregon House bans motorboats and seaplanes on Waldo Lake



WALDO LAKE, Ore. — Kayakers, canoeists and other recreation enthusiasts soon will be able to enjoy Waldo Lake without the noise from motorboats and seaplanes.

The Oregon House voted 37-20 yesterday to approve Senate Bill 602, which would ban seaplanes from using Oregons second largest lake.

The bill also kicked off a law adopted last year by the Oregon State Marine Board to ban motorized boats.
