Officials urge caution around Swan Lake 04 May 18

The McLeod County Sheriff’s Office is advising people to stay away from the boat landing area in Swan Lake Park on the north edge of the lake. A drain tile has apparently broken or shifted on the north edge of the lake, causing a swirling eddy as the lake drains. Officials were at the lake Thursday hoping to find a solution for the problem. The Sheriff’s Office says people should not unload their boats, swim, wade or walk near the area as the ground may be washing away.
