Sherburne County Sheriff Implements “No Wake Zones”
ELK RIVER -- The Sherburne County Sheriff is implementing "No Wake Zones" on a number of lakes to help preserve the shorelines due to high water levels.
Boaters will need to be a "No Wake" speed anytime within 150 feet of shore on the Elk River, Big Elk Lake, Eagle Lake, and Lake Orono.
The sheriff is also reminding boaters that high water levels create a greater risk of submerged docks and other debris.
The Briggs Lake Chain is already under a "Slow, No Wake" designation through Palmer Township.
The emergency order does not apply to Briggs Lake, Rush Lake, or Lake Julia.
The "No Wake Zones" are in effect through May 31st.
