Skiers And Jet Skis Temporarily Banned At Mackenzie

Lake Mackenzie is closed to water skiers and jet skis. That's according to the Plainview Daily Herald.

It quotes the lake general manager as saying it's a safety issue.   The lake, which is 27 miles east of Tulia, is losing four inches of depth or more per month.   If the lake level rises, water skis and jet skis will return. 

The ban does not yet include fishing and normal boat traffic. The lake also serves as a water supply for Floydada, Lockney, and Silverton.
