Long Lake

A summer view of Long Lake. The Long Lake Waters Association is one of two new citizen-led lake associations formed in the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District.

Two new citizen-led lake associations formed in the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) in 2016, bringing the number of resident groups organized around lakes and streams in the district to an all-time high. One of them consists of residents from the cities of Medina, Long Lake and Orono.

The new consortium is called the Long Lake Waters Association, and brings together Medina, Long Lake and Orono residents to address water quality issues on a regional scale. They’re working to understand the relationship between the lake and the surrounding landscape and to develop effective strategies to reduce the flow of polluted stormwater into Long Lake.
