LMCD Urges Speed Limits and Minimum Wake Compliance

The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD), by state enabling legislation, is charged with governing the surface waters of Lake Minnetonka.   Although the Lake elevations were not high enough for the LMCD to declare “High Water,” the LMCD is urging all Lake users to comply with the standard speed limits and “minimum wake” requirements.  These requirements are set by law to protect the public, existing water structures, and shoreline erosion.  This is of particular importance due to elevated Lake levels and the increased boating traffic during this holiday weekend.  Please review the LMCD’s standard regulations pertaining to watercraft speed via the following press release, LMCD Speed Limits and Minimum Wake Requirements Press Release.
