GFP COMMISSION PROPOSES TO REMOVE WATER SAFETY ZONE ON LAKE NORDEN AND MINA LAKE


PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission proposed to remove a water safety zone on Lake Norden in Hamlin County and Mina Lake in Edmunds County.


The proposal would remove the no wake zone near the dam at the Mina Lake Recreation Area. There is no active swimming beach located at this location and there has been no public desire for a buoyed safety zone in this area.


The proposal would also remove the no wake zone near the spillway area at the Lake Norden Recreation Area. Recreational use of this swimming area is limited, and several lake homeowners are in support of this proposal.


To comment in person, the public hearing will be held March 5 at 2 p.m. CST at the Ramkota Convention Center in Pierre. Individuals can comment online at gfp.sd.gov/forms/positions or mail comments to 523 E. Capitol Ave., Pierre, SD 57501. To be included in the public record and to be considered by the commission, comments must include a full name and city of residence and meet the submission deadline of 72 hours before the public hearing (not including the day of the public hearing).
