Sheriff’s office issues “no wake” restrictions

The flooding and ongoing high water on a pair of area lakes has prompted the Cottonwood County Sheriff’s Office to “no wake” restrictions.

The no wake restrictions take effect immediately on Cottonwood Lake, as well as Bingham Lake.

The restrictions prevent boats and other watercraft from traveling at a rate of speed high enough to create large waves on the water, which could come ashore and create further flooding of homes, beaches and property.
