Lake Albert: Exclusive Use this Sunday
19 January 2012
NSW Maritime has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of fireworks on Lake Albert at Wagga Wagga on Sunday (22 January).
NSW Maritime Regional Manager Murray/ Inland Scott Kidd said boaters should avoid the lake in a 300 metre radius from a pontoon that will be used to stage the fireworks between 5.30pm and 8.45pm.
“This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of the fireworks,” Mr Kidd said.
“For safety reasons, skippers should avoid this area as it will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.”
Mr Kidd said unauthorised vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by event organisers, a NSW Maritime Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
