BLUE EARTH COUNTY - If you are planning on hitting the lakes this weekend, be aware there is a no wake restriction on several lakes in Blue Earth County.

Lake George, Lake Ballantyne, Duck Lake and Madison Lake are all still under a no wake restriction. The no wake restrictions are in place to avoid encroachment on lakeshore properties and to protect boaters from underwater obstructions. 

With storms in the forecast, the Blue Earth County Sheriff's Office plans to monitor the precipitation to see what effect is has on the water levels. The restriction must be obeyed by all boaters or it could result in criminal penalties.
