INFORMATION :: Lake Detroiters :: Dick Hecock explains :: "Ordinary High Water (OHW) level" is the boundary between the state-owned lake and private property - your legal lakeside property boundary if you are a lakeside resident. ==> If you want to know exactly where it is, look where the lake's edge is today - it is exactly 1334.3 feet above sea level, the elevation established by the state for Detroit Lake. That property line doesn't mean much to the lake, because the lake is frequently above that level.

Lake Detroiters shared a memory.

3 years ago today .... Lake Detroiters partnered with Minnesota Bound, FM Walleyes Unlimited, Inc., and Tri-State Diving with comments from Minnesota Department of Natural Resources on zebra mussels in Pelican Lake; Otter Tail County. The segment starts at about 5 minutes into the segment and is 4 minutes long. Zooplankton (food for native fish) is compromised when zebra mussels infest a lake. Prevention is still the best practice! **Do Your Part** to protect Minnesota's waters and take precautions when moving watercraft and water-related equipment from lake to lake - - - many lakes are infested for years prior to being detected!

Forest Lake (Washington County) got the one-two punch last year with the news of TWO new AIS in the lake - Eurasian watermilfoil and zebra mussels along with their previous flowering rush infestation and their lake association members aren't happy. Take precautions now so Detroit Lake does succumb to these AIS shenanigans! The article link is below:

**NEWS** Today AIS Watercraft inspections started at all Minneapolis lakes and a zebra mussel was found in a sailboat drain. The City of Minneapolis inspects from 6am to 10pm everyday - and access to the lakes is only available if an inspector is on duty. No zebra mussels have been detected on their city lakes so far. Guess inspections paid off today!

Detroit Lake remains an important walleye lake in our area and let's keep it that way! The fishery collapse of Mille Lacs has caused the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to take a close look and determine if restoring walleye numbers is possible at this juncture in the complex lake eco-system. It is the only known lake to have zebra mussels, spiny water flea, and Eurasian watermilfoil. Read about 5-10 million fry (tiny walleye) that will be stocked in Mille Lacs in hopes to help bring back the walleye population. Fingers crossed.....

ZEBRA MUSSEL UPDATE :: More scientific details are reported about the Lake Minnetonka situation. This is why it is important for everyone to help protect Detroit Lake - and all MN lakes - from AIS. Our lakes are so important to our community and our MN lifestyle. Imagine our Mile Long City Beach on Detroit Lake full of dead zebra mussels. It could be a reminder of what the beach was like with the flowering rush infestation in 2008. That is now gone and the beach is a water haven for families & tourists to enjoy. Be sure to take every precaution to protect Detroit Lake and our City Beach so it doesn't return to earlier years of an AIS infestation. ZMs have a 3-5 year life cycle - but are not known to go away.

MESSAGE FROM Governor Mark Dayton & Lt. Governor Tina Smith on the importance of protecting our water resources and how everyone must do their part. Water is essential for life - and in the Land of 10,000 Lakes - it is our most valuable asset! ==> Governor Dayton on Water Quality: "Failure is not an option" My father, Bruce Dayton, taught me that good stewardship is one of our most important responsibilities: to take what we have been given, or have acquired, and leave it in better condition for those who will inherit it from us. As Minnesotans, who have inherited this incredible state, we have no greater shared responsibility than our stewardship: to protect and improve the priceless natural resources, which we will pass on to our children and grandchildren. That wise stewardship is everyone's challenge and everyone's opportunity. Tragically, in recent years, the quality of our water has deteriorated in many parts of our state. Too many lakes, rivers, streams, and ditches have become contaminated with potentially dangerous chemicals. In some communities, the surface and underground waters our citizens use for drinking, washing, work, and recreation are no longer safe. There are a couple of contradictory trends here. The first is that as a state we are doing more and more to protect and improve our water quality. We are spending more public and private resources to achieve this important goal. The second, however, is that our water has become more polluted and less safe in many areas. Those contradictions tell me two things. One, we're not doing enough to correct the problems. And two, we're doing too much to cause the problems. They are simple conclusions. But in our complex environment, there are often no simple solutions. And there is often disagreement about how best to achieve them. But ignoring our water quality problem is not the solution. Doing nothing will only make matters worse, by allowing problems to turn into crises. That is what happened in Flint, Michigan. We cannot let it happen here. Which is why I have declared this week to be “Water Action Week” in Minnesota. I challenge everyone to take actions that will lead to a new era of clean water in Minnesota. 1. Learn about your water quality. Visit our Water Action Week web page at http://mn.gov/governor, to learn more about the water quality challenges in your community. Test the water in your well. Ask your local officials what they are doing to protect or improve the quality of the water you and your family rely upon. 2. Teach your children about clean water, and let them teach you. Talk with your children or grandchildren about the importance of water in our lives. A great place to start is www.h2oforlifeschools.org, where you can find simple lesson plans, watch short videos, and find new ways to improve water quality. 3. Set a water conservation goal. Fixing leaky pipes in your home, turning off the water when brushing your teeth, or using less fertilizer on your lawn are just some of the small changes that will add up to big improvements in our state’s water quality. 4. Call your legislators. This session, I have a proposed a $220 million down-payment on some of the clean water upgrades urgently needed to provide safe drinking water in communities throughout Minnesota. I encourage you to review my proposal at http://mn.gov/governor. If you agree that it deserves top priority, please call your legislators and encourage them to support those important investments to improve our state’s aging water infrastructure. You can find out how to contact your legislator by using the “Who Represents Me?” tool at www.gis.leg.mn/iMaps/districts. We can preserve the best of what we have in Minnesota by behaving responsibly. By being wise stewards, we can bequeath clean water to future generations. My water quality initiatives are not intended to take anything away from anyone. I'm not trying to take away anyone's property, or livelihood, or happiness. But I do want to preserve all of that for everyone else. It is my responsibility as the chief executive of this state, and it's your responsibility as a citizen of this state. It will require all of us working together to achieve our goal. Failure is not an option. Mark Dayton Governor of Minnesota

NEWS - - Sue Galatowitsch resigns from the Minnesota AIS Research Center at the University of Minnesota: Dear friends and partners of MAISRC - - I wanted to let you know that I have decided the time is right for me to pass the baton to the next leader of the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center. This is part of my commitment to addressing the need identified in our strategic plan of having a full-time researcher-director to fully commit his/her time and attention to the important work of aquatic invasive species and the Center. I feel that with twenty research projects underway on ten high-priority species, our research needs assessment process established, and a phase two funding request submitted to LCCMR, we are in a good position for this transition to occur. I have promised to help shepherd our new funding request through the process, and I will continue to be a staunch supporter of MAISRC, to assist in the transition, and will be available as a close advisor to the next director when that person is selected. We have been working with the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences on a succession plan to occur by July 1, and are in the initial stages of implementing that plan. Yesterday, we received endorsement from our advisory board on a process to select the next director. Please stay tuned for more information coming shortly. It has been a great honor to serve in the role of Director the last two years. With the strong foundation that has been laid, and with your continued help, the Center is positioned for a bold and impactful future under the helm of its next leader.M

UPDATE - - Lake Koronis; City of Paynesville has the first known infestation of ==>starry stonewort (SSW) in Minnesota. SSW is an aquatic invasive species (AIS) - a grasslike algae - known to form dense mats, engulf fish spawning habitat and clog boat motors - none of which is good for water recreation. There is no known effective treatment method on the horizon to eliminate this invasive - but now over $1 million dollars has been targeted to attack SSW in order to help protect the lake eco-system and prevent the further spread to other lakes in MN. Koronis Lake Association working with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the North Fork of the Crow River Watershed District is targeting to limit watercraft from having to pass thru 250+ acres of the invasive mass on the lake. It is suspected that SSW was present in the lake for years prior to it being discovered. Moving watercraft and water-related equipment from any lake to lake without taking necessary steps is risky in spreading AIS because the lake may be infested - just not yet discovered. Report any suspicious new infestation to our Detroit Lakes local DNR AIS Specialist: 218-739-7576 ext 254.==> Do your part and learn more about this situation in order to help stop the further spread of ALL AIS in MN: http://www.sctimes.com/story/sports/outdoors/2016/04/10/attacking-aquatic-invasives-lake-koronis-pilot-projects-augment-starry-stonewort-research-inspections/82604972/

Yesterday Becker County Commissioners voted 3 to 2 to re-open the tram (closed since 2014) that runs between Lake Sallie and Detroit Lake via Muskrat Lake. This vote was despite concern of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources pertaining to MN statute compliance, Becker County citizens opposed to spending public funds that would benefit only a few lake homeowners, and Lake Detroiters' recommendation to not re-open the tram based on lack of justification and public input. $10,000 of public funds are allocated to get the tram up and running which will benefit only a few lake homeowners.

Some information on the Eagle nest from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources: http://webcams.dnr.state.mn.us/eagle/ Three eggs in the nest. A few viewers have contacted us with concerns that only two eggs appear visible in the nest. Please rest assured that all three eggs are still present in the nest. The nest bole is getting fairly deep and may obscure our view of all three eggs from time to time. If an egg is destroyed we will be sure to let everyone know. A little over halfway. The first egg was laid January 25, meaning we are a little over halfway through the incubation process. Hatching occurs after about 35 days of incubation, so expect the first to start hatching around March 1. As we watch for hatching please keep in mind that the eaglets will hatch asynchronously (not all at the same time), this means that the second and third eggs laid will hatch a few days after the first. If you missed the videos of the egg laying process, they can be viewed anytime online (video1, video2). Parental care. Both adult eagles help incubate their eggs. We have observed the incubating adults roll their eggs often, this rolling behavior is one of the things the adult eagles need to do to keep the chicks inside alive (learn more about why rolling is important at: http://ornithology.com/ornithology-lectures/development-birds/). Both adults have been observed at the nest recently - switch-offs happen quickly. Where's the food? Some have expressed concern about the lack of food in the nest. Please remember that it is still early in the egg incubation process. The adults are taking turns leaving the nest, incubating and foraging on their own (and feeding away from the nest). Occasional meals may be brought to the nest during this time. As hatching approaches toward the end of Feb. we will start to see the adults stockpiling food in their nest.

Sledding Information :: Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week from Jan. 16 to Jan. 24 is a good time to sign up or take a class on how to safely operate a snowmobile, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976, need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. There are two ways to do this. First, the traditional classroom course, taught in local communities by volunteers, is available for anyone 11 or older. Second, the course can be taken online followed by a hands-on ride and review day with volunteer instructors. Students will have an opportunity to review the material they learned online and demonstrate the skills they’ve learned by operating a snowmobile through a designated course. These are listed on the DNR website at www.mndnr.gov/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html. Remember to reduce speed according to riding conditions and never consume alcohol when snowmobiling. Consider joining a snowmobile club. For more information, visit www.mnsnowmobiler.org. For a copy of the DNR’s 2015-2016 Minnesota Snowmobile Safety Laws, Rules, and Regulations handbook, call 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157, or visit the DNR website at www.mndnr.gov/regulations/snowmobile. More than 1,000 volunteer instructors teach DNR snowmobile safety courses across the state. For more information on the dates and locations of these courses, visit: www.mndnr.gov/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/traditional.html.
