Low Water Levels Prompt Conservation District to Take Unusual Action

Lake Minnetoka Conservation District is opening up application process for dock extensions.

When Lake levels fall below 928.0 feet, the Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) Board of Directors may approve a resolution that allows for temporary dock length extensions for licensed (multiple dock facilities) and unlicensed (primarily residential) sites on Lake Minnetonka.  

The LMCD Board of Directors has been considering this matter based on water level readings provided by the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District since mid-March, as well as projected precipitation.  

Based on those findings, a resolution was adopted on Wednesday declaring “low water” on Lake Minnetonka.  

This resolution authorizes temporary dock extensions per LMCD code. The permitting forms defining and authorizing the placement of the temporary dock extensions are attached to this posting.

Contact the LMCD office at (952) 745-0789 for further information on the “Low Water Declaration.”
