The Comfort Lake - Forest Lake Watershed District (CLFLWD) encompasses roughly 47 square miles in northern Washington County and southern Chisago County, including the Cities of Chisago City, Forest Lake, Scandia, and Wyoming. The watershed outlets to the northwest to the Sunrise River, which flows northeast through Chisago County before discharging to the St. Croix River.
The CLFLWD is unique because the south portion of the watershed lies within Washington County and the seven-county metropolitan area. The northern portion extends into Chisago County beyond the metropolitan area boundary and is the only watershed district in the state which transects both metropolitan and outstate counties. Roughly 60 percent of the watershed lies in Washington County and 40 percent lies in Chisago County.
