Patrol drops no-wake policy at the Lake of the Ozarks

OZARKS, Mo. (AP) — Authorities are no longer restricting boaters to operating at idle speed on the Lake of the Ozarks.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said in a news release Saturday that effective immediately, the no-wake policy is lifted. The policy was put into place Thursday because heavy rains were causing lake levels to rise.

Governor Jay Nixon thanked Ameren Missouri in a news release for acting quickly to lower water levels with releases from Bagnell Dam. In issuing the order, Nixon had cited the increased public safety risk and possible damage to docks, boats and the shoreline.

The patrol says it’s still wise to be cautious, noting that the Fourth of July is a busy boating day.
