EWM Harvesting Program Update (8/17/15)

The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) has concluded the 2015 EWM Harvesting Program.  The harvesting season operates from mid June through mid August.

Since the inception of the LMCD’s Harvesting Program in 1989, the primary objective has been to address impediment to public navigation caused by EWM.  The LMCD does not: 1) harvest EWM within a property owners dock use area, and 2) harvest EWM outside a property owners dock use area that is not causing an impediment to navigation, but may not be aesthetically pleasing.

Harvesting was conducted in the following bays during the week of August 10th:

  • South Upper Lake
  • Phelps Bay
  • Spring Park Bay
  • Carmans Bay
