Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen is asking boaters to operate their boats at low speeds to generate no wake on lakes with high water levels.

High water levels continue to be an issue on Lake Shamineau, Crookneck Lake and Pine Lake, Larsen said.

Excessive wakes can create significant erosion to shorelines, along with actual damage to docks and structures on the water, Larsen said.

This summer, the Sheriff's Office water patrol and Department of Natural Resources conservation officers will be asking boaters to operate at no wake speeds when they are within 300 feet of shore.

Additionally, no-wake signs will be placed at public accesses on lakes.

Until water levels return to normal, Larsen asked that individuals to use extra caution in adhering to these advisories
