Crystal Lake is the headwaters to Minneopa Creek, which feeds a local treasure, Minneopa Falls. Remember: Everything we do to our yards, streets, and farms impacts our rivers, lakes and wetlands. Everyday decisions do matter! Clean water starts with me!
County Ditch 56 repairs are complete! This photo above shows loose straw covering the strip next to the ditch, which has been seeded with native plants. County Ditch 56 also has these native plants seeded next to it as it runs through the City of Lake Crystal. If you are a landowner along the ditch in Lake Crystal, please be aware that this buffer should also be maintained as required by the buffer law. Please do not mow the buffer!
