White Bear Lake USGS Grant Study
White Bear Lake Conservation District voted to enter into an agreement with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) for a two-year, $200,000 groundwater/surface water interaction study. USGS Hydrologist Perry Jones said local enough money is in place to begin the survey this spring to help explain the historic drop in water levels on White Bear Lake and to help officials find a way to address the problem.

The money for the study is coming from a variety of sources including; the city of White Bear Lake, White Bear Township, and the city of Mahtomedi. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Rice Creek Watershed District, and The White Bear Lake Homeowner’s Association have also pledged money for the project.

White Bear Lake, a private lake, is more than five feet below the ordinary high water mark. The low water levels have hampered fishing and boating, contributed to heavy weed growth, and forced authorities to close the lake’s biggest public swimming beach.

Underwater Grass Beds Maintain Health - An expansive bed of underwater grass at the mouth of the Susquehanna River has proven it is able to "take a licking and keep on ticking." A recent study has found that the submersed aquatic vegetation (SAV) bed at Susquehanna Flats, which only recently made a comeback in the Chesapeake Bay, was not only able to survive a barrage of rough storms and flooding, but it has proven a natural ability to protect and maintain itself.
