Boating Season Officially Begins
With the annual start of the boating season Memorial Day weekend, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is reminding everyone to follow the law and protect their waters from aquatic invasive species.
“Everyone using Minnesota waters must remember that Clean, Drain, Dispose is not only the best way to protect their lakes and rivers, it’s also the law,” said Ann Pierce, section manager, Ecological and Water Resources Division. Fines for violations range from $100 to $500.
Before leaving a water access, boaters are required to:
- Clean off all aquatic plants and animals.
- Drain all water from bilge, livewell and baitwell by removing drain plugs and leaving the drain plug out when transporting.
- Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash.
More information, including a 25 minute video titled “Aquatic Invasive Species, Minnesota Waters at Risk,” is available at: www.mndnr/AIS.

Reporting Pot Holes
City water mains are flushed semi-annually in the spring and the fall. Flushing is done to remove mineral deposits that have accumulated in the water pipes. Households may experience rusty water, discoloration or other problems during flushing. City crews take precautions to limit problems. However, if you do experience rusty water, running the cold-water tap will clean out your system. Call the Utility Division at 952.960.7900 if you have a problem related to flushing that does not clear up within 48 hours.
