SIOUX FALLS, SD - Restrictions on boating and other recreation on the Big Sioux River in southeast South Dakota have been lifted.
Gov. Mike Rounds on Thursday signed an order rescinding the restrictions put in place last week.
Local officials had requested the restrictions amid concerns the flooded river wasn't safe. They now say the threat has passed, but caution should be used.
