Sheriff: No-wake restrictions on Big Swan Lake

Meeker County Sheriff Brian Cruze announced a no-wake restriction on Big Swan Lake when operating a boat within 500 feet of shore.

The restrictions come after heavy rain raised water levels in the lake, and increased boating traffic has caused damage to the shoreline.

Sheriff Cruze says that other lakes in the county are being monitored and more no-wake restrictions could be added in the future.

The Sheriff also reminds boaters to use caution and be mindful of water levels on every lake.
