Nassau County, Florida, August 17, 2021 – Due to the excessive rainfall experienced in Nassau County over the last few months, the water level in many of our creeks and rivers are higher than normal. In some areas, high water levels combined with excessive boat wakes, can adversely impact homes along our waterways and exacerbate shoreline erosion.

We would like to take this opportunity to request that boaters respect existing no wake zones and be courteous to our friends and neighbors by keeping your wake to a minimum in areas where homes front the river.

We appreciate everyone’s attention to this matter and for doing your part to protect our natural resources.

If you have any questions, please contact the County Manager’s Office at (904) 530-6010.

I live on Egan’s creek and it’s a constant

battle to slow some boaters down .Eagan’s Creek is a no wake zone from the entrance of the creek at the mouth of intracoastal to Atlantic Ave., but the creek entrance sign is hardly readable. There is one other beyond

14th street Bridge heading south that’s in good shape , and many of us have signs on our docks, but all to often the slow zone is ignored. Many manatees use the creek certain times of the year, that should be reason enough to slow down, but the damage to the banks happens everytime slow zones are ignored.
