Sanner says the water rescue teams have been called out to area lakes and rivers several times over the past week.

Boat operators should reduce their speed to create no wake or waves from their boat. Water patrol officers will be out on area lakes over the weekend to remind boaters to follow these recommendations.

More rain in the forecast to add to water levels through the upcoming weekend.
