PLYMOUTH — Boaters, go ahead and use that throttle — the slow-no wake rule on Medicine Lake has been lifted. 

The city of Plymouth said Wednesday, June 5, that the rule was lifted at 6 a.m. It was ordered on May 30 after the lake's water level reached at least 889.4 feet for three consecutive days. 

The rule was lifted because the water level has been below that level for at least three days, the release says. 

Slow-no wake rule requires boaters to go no more than 5 mph to help protect the shorelines when water levels are high.
