— Water levels on the Rock River are dropping, and that's good news for Janesville's Rock Aqua Jays water ski show team.

Flooding last year and continued high water problems on the Rock River this spring, forced the local ski team to abandon practice sessions and shows at Traxler Park in Janesville.


Club President, Joel Shapiro, says the "slow no wake" zones have been canceled and practices began Monday.


The first local show at Traxler Park this season will be held Sunday, June 14th. The team is also getting ready for a busy summer of tournaments, including the Mercury Open Water Ski Show, June 27th. Shapiro says after that, they'll participate in state and national competitions. The other good news is renovations to the retaining wall at Traxler Park, and to the concrete stage, should be completed late this week or early next week.
