Long Lake in Long Lake

LONG LAKE — The no wake restriction has been lifted on Long Lake, the city's Facebook page said on Thursday, June 6. 

High water levels on the lake prompted the city to issue a no wake restriction on May 29.

"As water levels have returned to below the posted high water mark, the slow-no wake restriction for Long Lake is coming off today. Just in time for a weekend!," the city's post on June 6 said. 

In May 2014, the Long Lake City Council adopted a slow-no wake ordinance that requires boaters to operate watercraft at a no wake speed on the lake whenever the water level is higher than 945 feet and has remained that way for three consecutive days.

Slow-no wake rule lifted on Medicine Lake

The slow-no wake restriction on Medicine Lake in Plymouth was lifted on Wednesday, June 5. No wake restrictions on Lake Minnetonka are still in effect, and will be until the lake's water level is below 930 feet for more than three consecutive days. As of Thursday, June 6, the water level was 930.09 feet, according to the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District.
