Slow, No Wake Orders Effective Sunrise Wednesday


Due to anticipated rainfall Wednesday afternoon and evening, Dane County is placing slow, no wake orders on Lake Monona.  The restrictions for watercraft to slow down will take effect at sunrise, Wednesday (tomorrow).


Dane County is declaring a slow, no wake on Lake Monona due to Wednesday’s expected rainfall and the potential that lake levels may subsequently rise further from those rains.  Slow No Wake Orders remain in effect for Lake Waubesa, Crystal Lake, and Squaw Bay.


Deputies from the Dane County Sheriff's Office Marine and Trail Division will be enforcing the slow, no wake restrictions on area waterways.
