Zebra mussels is another Aquatic Invasive Species (like curly leaf pondweed) that is creating issues on many Minnesota lakes and rivers.   They have infiltrated Prior Lake but Cedar Lake has not shown any signs of their presence yet. We should all be aware of this threat to our lake and what we can do to minimize the risk.   Linked here is a very informative article printed in Sunday’s, July 30, 2017, Star & Tribune  http://www.startribune.com/how-the-scourge-of-zebra-mussels-spread-across-minnesota/423913703/


Blue-green algae has been found and reported in the NE bay according to Melissa Bokman of Scott Watershed Management Organization.  There might be more of it around the lake.  It has been reported in the news in other lakes recently and is a common occurrence on many Minnesota lakes.   If you see it, stay away and don’t swim in it.  Read the attached link about its dangers to humans and pets.  https://www.pca.state.mn.us/news/blue-green-algae-if-doubt-stay-out

The disposal of yard and animal waste, leaves, raked lake weeds and dead animals into the lake is considered littering and is a fineable expense per the Scott County Sheriff's Department. Please dispose of these items properly and not into Cedar Lake. Anyone witnessing a violation, please call the Sheriff's office at 952-445-1411 to report it. Thank you.

Welcome to Cedar Lake Improvement!

Welcome to the Cedar Lake Improvement District's (CLID) website. Browse the background information and view the parcel map to see if you reside in the CLID, educate yourself by reviewing the lake management plan or check in on the progress of current projects. CLID residents can even share their fun lake photos or post in the lost and found section in order to connect with neighbors.

The CLID is comprised of residencies and open land, both on and near 793 acre Cedar lake in Scott County, MN. Public entities that lie within the specified CLID boundaries include Cedar Lake Farm Regional Park and two public boat landings.

The CLID is overseen by a volunteer board. Board members recognize that those living or owning land within CLID boundaries are stakeholders in the health and quality of Cedar Lake. Through communication with residents, partnerships and/or collaborations with public/private organizations, the CLID works to recognize the water and lake quality challenges of today and make Cedar Lake an improved resource for the future.
