DNR: Normal boating may resume on Indian Lakes Chain

The Journal Gazette

The emergency order restricting the operation of motorized watercraft has been rescinded for the Indian Lakes Chain in LaGrange County, and normal boating operations may resume, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said today.

The Indian Lakes Chain consists of Dallas, Witmer, Hackenberg, Westler and Messick lakes.

The emergency order for the West Lakes Chain, which consists of Waldron, Steinbarger, Tamarack and Jones lakes in Noble County, will continue because of continued concern about high water levels, the DNR said. The order limits the operation of motorized watercraft to idle speed on the lakes in that chain.
