No, the Lake Will Not Be Closed Due to Flooding This 4th of July

Update: Governor declares the entire lake a "no-wake" zone.

While flooding presents major problems for property owners on the lake, Ameren and the Missouri Water Patrol have both confirmed that they will not be forcing a lake-wide ban on boating this weekend, as they did in 1986. However, there may be expanded no-wake zones and all boaters are generally asked to idle until the lake reaches normal levels again.

Besides, there's going to be a lot of debris in the water this weekend and speeding along is a surprisingly effective way of finding it with an outdrive.
