Iowa: DNR Removes No Wake Speed Restriction at Blue Lake

DNR removes no-wake speed restriction at Blue Lake

MONONA COUNTY, Iowa – The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has lifted the no-wake speed restriction, which equates to roughly 5 mph, for boating on Blue Lake at Lewis and Clark State Park.

The water levels have dropped to below flood stage and the lake level has returned to normal levels around 1041.7 feet.

The no-wake restriction had been in place since July 3 to minimize the impact of the high water to infrastructure around the lake, as well as boater safety issues associated with flood related debris floating just under the water surface.
