Activity to resume on lakes

VIDALIA — Normal activity is slated to resume on Lake Concordia and Lake St. John today with just one stipulation, Sheriff Randy Maxwell said.

“We’re asking everyone to please stay in the middle of the lakes and refrain from boating near piers and property in order to avoid damage,” he said.

Recreational boating and fishing were halted on the two lakes late last week due to the significantly rising water caused by recent storms and heavy rainfall.

“We want to thank everyone for their cooperation during this time period,” Maxwell said. “We know that this has caused a hardship on some and everyone wants to open the lakes back up just as quickly as possible.”
