County issues warning on lakes
Scott County has extended no-wake restrictions to boaters on O’Dowd Lake, Thole Lake, Cedar Lake, and Fish Lake
Natural Resources Manager Paul Nelson extended the restrictions for 30 days, or until lake levels subside to what has been determined to be safe.
An inspection found that all the lakes had water level elevations exceeding established “Ordinary High Water levels,” Nelson said.
Amid forecasts for additional rain, potential for additional damage and safety concerns from debris in the water, deputies will patrol the lakes for violations.
Slow no wake is defined as “the operation of a watercraft at the slowest possible speed necessary to maintain steerage, but in no case greater than five miles per hour.”
Questions can go to the Scott County Sheriff’s Office at (952) 445-7750.
