Lilly Lake remains slow no wake

Despite the passage of a couple weeks since the order was first issued, Lilly Lake remains under slow no wake, Wheatland town Clerk Sheila Siegler said Friday.

The Wheatland Town Board imposed a slow no wake order on Lilly Lake on May 13. The town does not have a declared lake level at which a slow no wake order is issued for the lake. However, when the slow no wake was issued town officials believed the lake was near the level when a slow no order was last issued in July 2017, a year of historic rains that also raised the Fox River to a record crest. The 2017 height when closed was 759.1 feet above mean sea level, said Mike Adam, who monitors the lake level for the town. On the day the slow no wake order was issued, the level was at 758.3.

Lilly Lake’s level tends to be more static than some other local lakes because it does not have an outlet in which to drain, said town Chairman Bill Glembocki.
