“No-Wake” Policy In Effect At Lake Of The Ozarks

Jefferson City, MO  (KTRS)  A “no-wake” policy at the Lake of the Ozarks is in effect.

On Thursday,  Governor Jay Nixon directed the Missouri Department of Public Safety and the Missouri State Highway Patrol to institute a no-wake policy in response to high water levels. This means boats must operate at idle speeds at the vacation hot spots, in an effort to reduce or prevent damage to docks, hoists, ramps,  and other personal property.

“The timing of these storms and the high water level coincides with one of the busiest weekends of the year, and we know there will be many boats out on the Lake,” Nixon said.

Nixon adds, “Responsible boaters are well aware of the damage that large wakes can wreak, and do what they can to minimize that damage. With the current Lake conditions, it is imperative that everyone use idle speeds. We want people to have fun, but to be very aware of wake impact while the Lake is so high.”

The order could be lifted Saturday, weather permitting.
