 Information: Lifting Of No Wake Order On Rock River
 Date: 08/19/10  Time:  9:00 AM       Page 1   of  1

 Narrative:  Sheriff Richard A. Meyers is announcing the lifting of the “NO WAKE ORDER” effective immediately for the entire Rock River within Winnebago County.  Boaters are encouraged to continue to use extreme caution while using the river for recreational purposes during this time as the presence of debris in the river creates hazardous conditions which are difficult to detect, and added boat traffic may work additional debris loose.  Additionally, the increased water flow creates a much faster current than what is normally experienced with the lower water levels. Although the river is now open for normal use, as a reminder recreational users of the rivers should exercise caution. For current river conditions, and any further updates, contact the Sheriff’s Office at (815) 319-6300, or the Rock River information telephone line at (815) 316-8888.
