PWC’s Banned from Cape Cod Pond

Following a recent vote by town residents, motorized personal watercraft, commonly referred to as “jet skis,” have been banned from the waters of Ashumet Pond in Mashpee, MA. (Ashumet Pond is shared by Falmouth, which banned PWC use in 1989.)

Residents in favor of the ban cited issues with noise, safety, and water quality, while those opposing the article pointed to the possible devaluation of homes and their right to use PWC’s responsibly.
