No Wake Zone Declared on Area Lakes
This year had the rainiest Memorial Day on record. This is also third wettest year-to-date on record. It’s no wonder why lake levels are high. It’s also why no wake rules are now in effect for several local lakes.
The city of Plymouth adopted a no wake zone for boaters using Medicine Lake. It means watercraft can’t exceed five miles per hour or a speed that creates more than a minimum wake.
The order is also in effect for Fish Lake in Maple Grove, Crystal Lake in Robbinsdale and the Twin Lakes, as well as an expanded area of Lake Minnetonka. You can see a complete list of lakes impacted here. The rule is put in place to protect property and minimize erosion of shorelines.
