Sweeney Lake Water Quality Improvement Project Set To Begin Oct 26

The Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission’s (BCWMC) Sweeney Lake Water Quality Improvement Project is scheduled to begin Oct 26 and will take up to 5 days, weather dependent.

The project includes the application of liquid aluminum sulfate (alum) to the lake’s surface, and residents can expect to see Solitude Lake Management boats and personnel on the lake during application days.

The goal of the project is to significantly reduce phosphorus levels, improve water quality, and support a balanced aquatic ecosystem in Sweeney Lake.

More information about alum is available¬†here and on the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s website. For questions or concerns about the project, please contact BCWMC Administrator Laura Jester at laura.jester@keystonewaters.com or 952-270-1990.
