Lake of the Ozarks open for 4th of July despite no-wake restrictions

The Lake of the Ozarks is open for the Fourth of July celebrations, despite the no-wake restrictions that are expected to continue through Friday afternoon.

Officials at Ameren Friday said swimmers are welcome to enjoy the lake as water levels have dropped to 661.5 feet.

Boaters are required to follow the no-wake policy which limits boats to idle speed to prevent damage to docks, boats, and the shoreline.

Ameren Missouri is still urging property owners at the Lake and Osage River to turn off electricity running to their docks, and should consider having their structures inspected before turning the power back on.

Boaters on the lake should also be aware of debris and tree limbs that the high water may have churned up.
