Maryland Boaters

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says boating and other recreational uses of the upper Potomac River should be avoided because of heavy rains that have led to hazardous river levels.

The department says recreational activity should also be avoided on creeks and streams feeding the main stem of the upper Potomac from Cumberland to Little Falls.

The DNR says the decision is based on information from the National Weather Service and the Maryland Emergency Management Agency. The advisory is in effect through Wednesday, when it will be updated if necessary.
