Boaters were hitting the throttle on Prior Lake for the first time in months on Monday.
Scott County lifted the no-wake restrictions on Prior Lake at 5 p.m.
The lake receded to 903.25 feet above sea level by Monday afternoon. At the height of the flooding, Prior Lake had reached almost 907 feet, which damaged homes and closed streets.
However, any heavy rainfall could change the lake's status again.
The restrictions had been in place since early June.
