Dangerous Waters in the Gull Lake Chain
The Cass County Sheriff’s Office is urging caution on the Gull Lake Chain including Lake Margaret and connecting channels, which have received significantly higher water than normal.
Sheriff Tom Burch is asking homeowners to ensure that boat lifts, boats, docks, rafts, etc are properly secured and not floating loose. The Sheriff is urging boaters to use extreme caution and be respectful of property while in these high water areas, especially channels, due to increased swift currents.

The area received over 7 and a half inches of rain from May 19th through Memorial Day.
