Vegetation Survey

Watercraft Inspection is done at both Maple Lake Accesses during summer months by a combined group of these local Agencies:
Wright Soil and Water Conservation
Anchor Dock & Lift

This service is performed on a rotating weekly schedule, two times a week at both area access.

The MLPOA has agreed to supply a portable Biffy toilet at the Highway 55 & the northeast Cty Road 37 accesses through September of 2016, a minimal expenditure for the value we receive from these groups.

If incoming vessels fail the inspection – they do not get access to our Lake.

Contact Tom Valenta 612.323.1654 if you spot a new patch of Aquatic Invasive Species anywhere on the lake!

Summer 2016 Water Quality & Invasive Species Report
The weather this year has been a challenge for the water quality team to finish our mapping & weed identification that we normally do in the spring.
We were able to identify and treat Curly Leaf in the channel – specifically for navigation purposes – 10 acres complete.

In the middle of June the mapping of milfoil was completed. The committee has reviewed the results and plans are in place for the middle of July 2016 to treat 20 of the 35 acres.

Cash flow makes it difficult to treat all that is needed. – The 20 acres does fall in line with the spring budgets.
