LETTER: Long Lake was wake-free Memorial weekend

To the Editor:

 

Long Lake in New Brighton is under a no-wake rule due to high water. Thank you to all the Memorial Day weekend boaters who complied and who also politely informed wake violators about the restriction. Additional recognition to those who reiterated the rule as boaters launched their water crafts at the public landing. We are all eager to begin summer on our lakes, but the high waters and wave motion destroy shorelines and docks. That weekend, the community came together to recognize the impact of boat wake on shoreline erosion.

Future lake users, please check the signage to see when the no-wake rule is on.
