About Green Lake

The Green Lake Association is a non profit volunteer lake association consisting of a board (president, secretary, treasure, committee chairs) and fundraising/activities committees.

Our primary objective is it to treat for invasive aquatic weeds in Green Lake such as Eurasian Watermilfoil and Curly Pond Leaf. Under strict supervision of the DNR the GLA is permitted to treat designated areas. The treatments are conducted minding specific guidelines regarding the protection of native aquatic plants and the fish population. Maintaining a clean and safe Green Lake is our goal.

In 2015, Chisago County purchased a Lambda EOS decontamination unit. The decontamination unit is used to apply hot water to watercraft to kill zebra mussels. The decontamination unit will rotate among the 10 most heavily used public water access in Chisago and northern Washington Counties. These accesses include Chisago/South Lindstrom, East Rush, Forest 1, Forest 3, Green, Little Green, North Center, Osceola, South Center, and Taylors Falls Lions Club landing. You may have seen them at Green Lake last week.

Good morning all,

I just wanted to thank all of you for helping out yesterday with the Eurasian milfoil spray. Without out all of you support this would not be possible.
I want to especially thank Bob Milam for providing all the paper work, discussions and professionalism to the DNR. Bob’s hard work with the DNR allows GLA to spay our lakes as an association, saving us money. Thank you Bob.

Have a great 4th of July everyone.

Monday, June 27th we will be spraying for Milfoil.
The designated areas will be marked this weekend.
There are no swimming or fishing restrictions in the treatment areas.
The DNR does suggest not pulling drinking water out of these areas, which I do not believe happens anyway.
Our permits only allow us to treat 150 feet from shore. We will be treating approximately 70 acres.
Thank you in advance for the volunteers that make this possible and affordable.

Green Lake Association Volunteers Needed!

There are 2 upcoming events after the 4th of July that need volunteers:

* Wednesday July 6th Water Festival 6:30- 8:00pm (with set up at 5:30)

The Water Festival will be held at Harmony in the Park during the music program (which will be Bob and the Beachcombers that evening).

There will be three water stations and Green Lake Association will be host to one station. The event is held every year to educate children on the importance of having clean, safe water in our environment. The DNR provides the games and they are pretty easy to play so the kids really get into it. I need 1-2 volunteers for the evening. Come listen to some music, see friends and help kids learn about clean water.

* Friday July 8th Karl Oskar Days 3 :00 - 6:00pm and 6:00- 9:00pm

Need a 2 volunteers for 3 hrs each, to help staff the Chisago Co. Lake Improvement District & Lake Associations booth. All materials will be provide. The role is to answer questions about the area lakes, lake associations, and LID. You don't have to be an expert, as there are plenty of handouts for people to take and get more information. The event is held all weekend at the park next to the Chamber of Commerce in Lindstrom and Green Lake Association committed to staffing the booth Friday evening.

Please let me know if you can help.
