Project Overview
The existing water control structure at the outlet of 119 acre Mud Lake (#47-31P) is severely corroded and in danger of washing out. If this CPL grant application is successful the structure will be replaced with a new one, consisting of non-corrosive High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) material. Project site is private lands but all necessary easements are held by State of Minnesota. Mud Lake is adjacent to a federal Waterfowl Production Area and provides important shallow lake habitat for waterfowl, other migratory birds, and resident wildlife.
