No-wake rule in effect on Medicine Lake
On May 2, the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office started enforcing a no-wake rule on Medicine Lake in Plymouth because of high water levels caused by recent heavy rains.
Signs will be posted at public access areas on the lake and the order will remain in effect until the water levels decrease and remain below an established high water mark of 889.4 feet for three consecutive days.
The cities of Plymouth and Medicine Lake adopted the slow/no-wake ordinance in 2001 to help protect the shoreline when water levels are unusually high.
