No Wake Restrictions on All Rice County Waterways

June 20, 2014
Due to the recent heavy rainfall over the last week 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 watercrafts shall use slow wake restrictions effective June 20, 2014 for no more than 30 days.
 
This is in an effort to reduce further property damage by reducing shoreline erosion.
