The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Water Patrol would like to remind boaters to be careful navigating the lakes this summer. Due to the high water levels there have been an increased number of floating bogs on several lakes in Douglas County.
Recent storms and high water have loosened vegetation around the lakes causing the release of the bogs. Some of the bogs are large and may move a great distance depending on wind and lake current. They also may be hard to see in low light conditions. Please use caution.
