Lake pump

I have a submersible pump in the lake, which is a Corps of Engineers-controlled body of water. They have decreed that all submersible pumps not UL rated for open water be removed, and apparently there are no UL rated pumps for this service. I'm looking at using a deep-well jet pump to fill a storage tank, and then use the submersible in the storage tank to feed my sprinkler system. Does anybody out there have any experience with this sort of thing? Thanks...

You might have to go to an above water pump. At least they did not say that water could not be pumped from the lake, which I have run into.
