Portions of Zumbro River Closed During Restoration

The Zumbro River in Oronoco hs been closed tall watercraft and recreational activities due to the river restoration project within the former Lake Shady.  The area under construction is from Highway 52 downstream to the DNR Canoe Landing in Oronoco.  The main branch of the Zumbro and North Fork remain open.  The project is expected to continue through this year.
