Del Clark Lake Sediment Retention Basins

Click on the photos below to view a time lapse of sediment retention basins that will filter pollutants prior to reaching the lake and help protect the status of Del Clark as a lake in full support of aquatic recreational use.  These projects were completed in June, 2021 with the aid of a Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources Clean Water Fund grant.

2021 Photography contest is now open!
