Wake boats damage our beautiful lakes & ponds

To the Editor,
 For the past 30 years my wife Kathy and I have kayaked on Wilmington’s Lake Raponda. It’s a quiet lake and we’re grateful that we can experience it with swimmers, anglers, other paddlers, and a variety of wildlife.
 Last fall I became aware of the efforts of Responsible Wakes for Vermont’s Lakes to have the state of Vermont establish rules for the operation of wake boats on Vermont’s lakes and ponds. For more than two years, they have been working collaboratively toward that goal with Vermont’s Department of Environmental Conservation.
