When Lake Minnetonka's water levels fall below 928 feet, the Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) code states the board of directors may approve a resolution declaring low water.
Such a resolution was adopted by the board on April 11, providing temporary permission for dock extensions.
Recent rains have brought Lake Minnetonka's water level up over a foot since then, and this week was measured at 929.09 feet. Since the lake level has risen to typical, historical measurements the low water declaration on Lake Minnetonka has been cancelled.
The cancellation takes effect immediately.
Temporary and legally-permitted dock length extentions, in accordance with LMCD code, are allowed to remain in place for the remainder of the 2012 boating season. All dock extenisons will, however, have to be removed by Nov. 15.
