Officials vote to reduce Dickinson Co. lake speed limit

UNDATED (KTIV) -- Okoboji area boaters: slow down. That's the ruling from the Iowa DNR.

The Natural Resource Commission voted Thursday morning, to lower the speed within 300 feet of shore on all Dickinson County lakes.

Right now, the speed limit is 10 miles per hour, but starting August 1, it will drop down to 5 miles per hour.

The commission also voted to get rid of "no wake" zones on several Iowa waterways, making them 5-mile-per hour zones.
