LMCD Terminates “Low Water” Declaration

When the Lake levels fall below 928.0 feet, the Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) Code states that the Board of Directors may approve a resolution declaring “Low Water.”   This declaration was adopted by the LMCD Board on April 11th; providing for permitted temporary dock length extensions.   On June 13th, the Lake level was 929.09 feet (over one foot higher than the trigger point of 928.0 feet).  Since the Lake level has risen to typical historical measurements, the “Low Water” declaration on Lake Minnetonka has been terminated, effective immediately.   Legally permitted temporary dock length extensions, in accordance with the LMCD Code, are allowed to remain in place for the remainder of the 2012 boating season.  All dock extensions must be removed prior to November 15th.
