The water in all of our lakes is higher this year and it has caused some problems with docks and boats that were stored close to shore over the winter.  Some of them have floated away and are now a hazard to boating and other activities.  If this has happened to your dock or boat please retrieve them as soon as possible and secure them in their proper location.
