St. Paul A recent declaration of a “no-wake zone” on the St. Croix River has been reversed, based on a revised forecast from the National Weather Service.

Due to heavy rainfall last week over much of central Minnesota
last week, water levels in the St. Croix were expected to rise to
the point where boaters would be required to slow down to minimize
shoreline damage. The restriction is authorized by both Wisconsin
and Minnesota.

However, updated information indicated the river would not rise
to levels that “trigger” the restriction. Even without the
restriction, officials ask boaters to slow down on the St. Croix
River, the Mississippi River, and the Minnesota River to minimize
shoreline erosion and other property damage.
