Cass County Sheriff’s Office Revises Slow Wake Advisory on Waterways

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office in Brainerd, Minnesota, has announced the revision of the suggested slow wake advisory on Cass County lakes, rivers, and waterways. Due to recent heavy rainfall causing unusually high water levels, the advisory now recommends maintaining a distance of 200 feet from shorelines, channels, and entering bays. The purpose of this advisory is to protect sensitive shorelines, private property, docks, and other water structures.

While some lakes have seen a decrease in water levels, there are still areas in Cass County experiencing high water. The Sheriff’s Office urges boaters to exercise restraint, good judgment, common sense, and courtesy while operating on area lakes, particularly those affected by high water. Boat operators are advised to reduce their speed in sensitive areas, as well as when operating close to shore and in channel ways.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office expressed gratitude to boaters and recreators for their anticipated cooperation in a news release. They also shared messaging, in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, emphasizing the importance of being aware of one’s surroundings while on the water. This includes staying away from shorelines, docks, and other structures to prevent damage and erosion. Additionally, minimizing repetitive passes and complying with signs and barriers are encouraged. Respect for others’ rights and consideration for all recreationists on and around the water are also emphasized.
