Governor to Lift No-Boating Zone on Big Sioux River in Sioux Falls
PIERRE, S.D. – The no-boating zone, which was enacted June 18 because of a city construction project on a short stretch of the Big Sioux River in Minnehaha County, will be rescinded by Gov. Dennis Daugaard, effective at 5 p.m. CDT on Friday, June 22, 2012.
The City of Sioux Falls has been repairing portions of its sanitary sewer system between the Minnesota Avenue bridge and the Cliff Avenue bridge, resulting in possible hazardous boating conditions on that section of the Big Sioux River.
The sanitary sewer system work will be completed by 5 p.m. Friday, and boating on the waterway may resume at that time.
