The creation of the Clam Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District (PRD) was created in 1970 when a group of land owners got together and signed a petition to form this organization. The PRD was originally established as a Sanitary District.
According to the petition, "the purpose of establishing PRD was for "the treatments of water for suppression of swimmers itch, algae and other nuisance producing aquatic growths. The aquatic growths in these waters have impaired their enjoyment by its adjacent property owners. At certain times weed growth has been so extensive as to completely prevent the use and enjoyment of the waters by boats and swimmers. The creation of such Sanitary District will greatly enhance the value of all property in such District."
A lot has changed in almost 40 years since the PRD was created. Ducks can no longer walk across the lake on the weeds; where there were once resorts, now are individually owned cabins and the weed situation, at least for the last couple years, has really changed.
Together, we find ourselves in an extraordinary situation with COVID-19. In the past few weeks, things have moved very quickly, and this pandemic is affecting all of our communities, our families and our very way of life. As such, we will be following the CDC and Federal Guidelines surrounding the practice of social distancing and cancel our April 25 Clam Lake PRD meeting.
We also understand it is important to provide you information about our beautiful lake. Over the next few weeks we will send a written update about topics we planned to discuss April 25 including the Aquatic Plant Management plan, weed harvesting and other lake events.
On behalf the Clam Lake PRD we wish you and your family good health and hope to see all of you at our meeting later this summer.
