Orders Issued for Lake Kegonsa, Crystal Lake

 

Slow/No Wake Orders have been issued for Lake Kegonsa and Crystal Lake. 

 

The orders are in effect for the entire surfaces of the lakes. 

 

Recent flooding rains have increased lake levels and the order is being issued in part due to the potential for additional rainfall over the next 24 hours.   

 

Under Slow/No Wake, boats must move as slowly as possible while still maintaining steering control and produce no wake. 

 

The order for Lake Kegonsa is effective immediately and will be in effect until sunrise on Thursday, July 4th.

 

The order for Crystal Lake is currently in effect and will be in effect indefinitely.

 

Violators may be subject to citation and fine by the Dane County Sheriff’s Office.  The Sheriff’s Office, along with the County Department of Land and Water Resources, will be posting signs informing lake users about the Slow/No Wake Order.
