[ARCHIVED] Signs and Buoys Added at Fishing Piers

Fire Chief Ian Paul inspects new buoy

The City of Pierre is enhancing safety along the waterfront.

Today, the City crews installed buoys and warning signs on the fishing piers at Steamboat Park.

“Because the fishing piers are a popular recreation area and because we’re seeing sustained high water levels in Lake Sharpe, we thought it important to put some additional safety measures in place,” said Ian Paul, Pierre Fire Chief.

Those enhanced features include signs warning of strong currents and advising no swimming and safety buoys that can be thrown to someone who may have fallen in the water.

Chief Paul says that the City has had buoys along the fishing piers before.

“In the past, vandals either destroyed or stole the buoys,” said Paul. “We’re really hoping that our community members are more respectful of the property this time around.”

Paul says that the new buoys are bright orange and encased. He went on to say that if anyone does see someone vandalizing the new features, they should report the incident to local police by calling 773.7410 with descriptive information of the individual/s involved.
