No Wake Restrictions on All Rice County Waterways

Due to the high volume of precipitation and rising water levels on our local lakes, rivers and streams, the Rice County Sheriff in cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is enacting an Emergency Water Surface Use Restriction.  This means that all watercraft shall use slow wake restrictions effective May 29, 2019 for no more than 30 days. 

This is in an effort to reduce further property damage by reducing shoreline erosion.
