  • The Nemaha Natural Resources District reports that high water is forcing a temporary ban on boating at Kirkman's Cove and Iron Horse Trail Lake.
    "Recent heavy rains have filled the lakes at Kirkman's Cove and Iron Horse Trail Lake to capacity and beyond," the NRD reports.
    Water levels are measured eight feet above normal pool limits resulting in an excess of water. Because of the high water levels, unseen hazards may exist in the lakes that would pose a danger to boaters.
    Hazards that are undetectable at Iron Horse may include grills, picnic tables, the wooden, handicapped accessible fishing pier, and other jetties that were constructed when the lake was renovated a couple of years ago.
    Similar hazards exist at Kirkman's Cove. Signs and barriers have been placed at both parks and will remain until water levels retreat to safe levels.
    The Nemaha NRD appreciates everyone's cooperation and understanding during the closures. Efforts will be made to get the parks cleaned up and returned to normal once the waters recede.
    If you have questions, contact the NRD in Tecumseh at 335-3325.
