Lake’s rise may trigger boat speed limits

With all the rain this year, Prior Lake is nearing the point where boaters will have to slow to a crawl no matter where they are on the lake.

The city is warning that the lake is close to the 904-foot level at which a “slow, no wake” limit kicks in. And it’s asking folks to limit shoreline erosion and damage by taking it easy this summer.

The lake had reached the 903.6-foot level by late last week.

When the lake hits 904 feet, “city ordinance dictates no person shall operate a watercraft at greater than a slow, no-wake speed on the entire lake.”

The Prior Lake/Spring Lake Watershed District has up-to-date information on lake levels on its website at

Sandbags can be purchased at City Hall for $.25 per bag and delivered free as soon as equipment and staff are free, usually within a day or two. For more information, call the city at 952-447-9800.


Tennis, skateboard lessons for kids

Starting next week, tennis and skateboard lessons are being offered by the Savage Recreation Department.

From July 8 to Aug. 5, sessions are available to accommodate various age groups and individual schedules. Visit or call 952-224-3420 for details and to register.
