Disposal of the debris is the responsibility of the homeowner.  Debris must be disposed of offsite in accordance with all local, state and federal laws and regulations.

All boats should be removed from the water to prevent damage.

Homeowner care should be given to docks and shoreline structures to prevent damage from flowing ice.


Very truly yours,
