A no-wake boating policy instituted Thursday at Lake of the Ozarks because of high water levels was extended Friday.
Water levels will be evaluated Saturday morning to determine whether the no-wake policy can be lifted, the Missouri Highway Patrol announced Friday.
“Water levels have been reduced but remain high,” the patrol announced in a written statement. “As a result, the Department of Public Safety and the Missouri State Highway Patrol are requiring all boaters to continue to use idle speed … until a determination is made that the no-wake policy can safely be lifted.”
The patrol also recommended that dock owners disconnect or turn off electricity to docks while the water level remains high.
