Inland harbormaster Justin Twitchell responded to a reported complaint of a sailboat being moored in the middle of Norton Pond. Twitchell made contact with the responsible party and the sailboat was subsequently relocated. Twitchell reports a boat must be within 200 feet of shore when moored and it cannot be placed in a location where it would interfere with regular boating traffic or access to another's docking system. If a boat is moored outside of the 200-foot threshold it must have a light on at all times.

Twitchell reports all of the buoys have been removed from the lake and placed in winter storage. All cottages located on the islands have been checked for storm damage and security. Twitchell reported finding a few open windows but no storm damage, and contacted the owners of the locations and advised them of his findings.
