Anoka County boat launch is open at Coon Rapids Dam

Water flow rates at the Coon Rapids Dam have dropped to 16,000 cfs and the Three Rivers Park District, which owns and operates the dam, has replaced the missing safety buoys.

As a result, the Anoka County boat launch at the Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park has opened.

The boat launch had been closed since late May because the water flow rate at the dam was over 20,000 cfs and the flow rate did not drop below that mark until earlier this week.
