Goose Lake Stakeholder Meeting: Video

Goose Lake has the most impaired water quality in the VLAWMO watershed. With a range of issues including nutrient levels above State standards, sedimentation, and large algae blooms, it's a high priority for the watershed and surrounding communities. But no single organization can do it on their own. A variety of community members working together can create a more effective, longer lasting impact on Goose Lake's health. 

We thank everyone who came out to the January 16th, 2019 meeting to learn more about Goose Lake, ask questions, and be involved.

For those unable to make the meeting, there's no need to miss out! Check out the video below to hear about this year's Goose Lake plans and what you can do to help. 

Other resources mentioned at the meeting: 

What can you do for Goose Lake?

  • Adopt a stormdrain to improve runoff going into Goose Lake. Service Opportunities
  • Preview the new adopt-a-drain.org to be familiar with the website. Web map will expand to Goose Lake and White Bear Lake area this spring. Adopt-a-drain website
  • Lead a stormdrain clean-up. Great for neighborhood groups, congregations, student service hours, and youth groups. Materials and guidance are available from VLAWMO. Service Opportunities
  • Practice water-friendly yard care and smart salting from home. Water stewardship at home.
  • Install a project on the ground. Learn more about shoreline restoration, native plants, and raingardens through our cost-share program. Installing these on the landscape improves the health of the lake by reducing runoff and improving water quality before it reaches the lake. Free on-site consultations available. Grants web page.
