Forest Lake Alum Treatment Occurring September 25th - 29th

Comfort Lake-Forest Lake Watershed District (CLFLWD) has maintained and improved the health of our local water ways for many years. The water quality improvement projects implemented by the CLFLWD have gotten area lakes (including Forest, Comfort, and Bone) over 92% of the way to meeting state water quality standards. Improved water quality equals cleaner and clearer water for generations to come.

This fall, the Watershed District will be hosting several community education workshops and events.
