WILLMAR β€” Kandiyohi County Sheriff Eric Holien on Tuesday expanded no-wake restrictions to additional lakes in the county.

The Norway Lake Chain, Games Lake, Lake Andrew, Eagle Lake and Lake Florida were added Tuesday to the list of lakes with a no-wake restriction within 500 feet of shore.

Lakes already announced Monday under the no-wake restriction are Big Kandiyohi, Diamond, Foot, George, Green and Nest.
