Background Information

The Cedar Lake Improvement District (CLID) was established many years ago by the Scott County Board of Commissioners at the urging of residents in the Cedar Lake area. The basic purpose of the District is to undertake activities and projects that would improve the water quality in Cedar Lake.

Over the years, CLID has successfully initiated several projects, including the Cedar Lake Area Sanitary Sewer Project and cleaning out the major water inlet to the lake at the south end of the lake. In the past year, the CLID Board has been actively engaged with the Scott County Watershed Management Organization and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to implement a multi-year effort to reduce the dominance of Curly Leaf Pondweed and restore native plants as well as controlling the carp population.

The CLID Board is grateful for the overwhelming vote of support (83%) that CLID residents gave at the annual meeting last April to move forward and improve Cedar Lake's water quality.
