MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Boaters and other lake goers are still being asked to go slow on Lake Minnetonka.

On June 5, the Lake Minnetonka Conservation District implemented an “Emergency High Water” declaration, during which it is against the law for any watercraft to go at a speed that would result in more than a minimum wake.

As levels have not significantly dropped, the declaration remains in effect.

According to the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, the lake level was 930.53 feet on June 13, down only 1.5 inches from the June 5 reading of 930.65 feet.

The lake must drop another three inches for the ordinance to end.

Those boaters that do not follow the ordinance will be given a warning, then a citation for $178.
