High water has caused South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem to sign an executive order to create temporary “no wake zones” on several eastern South Dakota lakes.

The following lakes have a “No Wake Zone”, effective immediately:

Lake Poinsett, in Hamlin and Brookings County,
Lake Madison, in Lake County
Swan Lake, in Turner County
Brant Lake, in Lake County.

The no wake zones will be within 300 feet of the shoreline on these lakes and will restrict boats to no greater than 5 miles per hour in those areas.

These no wake zones will be in place until high water conditions subside.
