Sheriff's Office asking for good judgement with high water levels
Stearns County area lakes are currently experiencing unusually high water levels. In particular, the Chain of Lakes and Sauk River area around Cold Spring and Richmond as we well as Two Rivers Lake in the St. Anna area are especially high. The Stearns County Sheriff's Office is in the process of placing "No Wake" signs in these areas. On these lakes and rivers and in all Stearns County waters, the Sheriff's Office is asking boaters to exercise restraint, good judgement and common sense. boat operators should reduce their speed to create no wake or waves from their boat. Water patrol officers will be out on area lakes reminding boaters to follow these recommendations. The Stearns County Sheriff's Office thanks all boaters for their cooperation in this matter.
