                                                   Order Remains in Effect for Squaw Bay                 


Dane County will be lifting the Slow/No Wake Order that has been in effect for Lake Monona. The Slow/No Wake Order will be rescinded for Lake Monona effective sunrise, Saturday morning on August 12, 2017.


A Slow/No Wake Order will remain in effect for Squaw Bay on Lake Monona.


Lake Monona had been under a Slow/No Wake Order since July 26 due to heavy rains. Recent drier weather has helped lake levels decline.


In addition to Squaw Bay, Slow/No Wake Orders remain in effect for Lake Waubesa and Crystal Lake due to high water levels.


Boaters are reminded that all lakes in the Yahara Chain have permanent, year-round 200-feet from shore Slow/No Wake restrictions.
