The IDNR has just released an emergency order. No motorized watercrafts may operate on Lake Tippecanoe (including Oswego and James Lakes).

No motorized watercrafts may operate on the Barbee Chain (including Big Barbee, Little Barbee, Sawmill, Kuhn, Irish, Banning, and Sechrist Lakes).

Lake Wawasee is restricted to idle speed only.

Please be safe! This order isn't only for the surrounding homes, but also the people on the boats. We've had reports on Tippy and Barbee of boats opperating close to homes at high speeds (Pictured between houses on Barbee Chain by John Labriola).
