Clearwater Lake Health
There is a lot that goes into determining a lakes health. There are also a many points of view on the most important aspects of a lake's health. The Clearwater Lake Association's goal is to find a balance between what is best for the lake and what is best for the general membership.
Crow Wing County has a very good report on the condition of our lake. The report is a little old, it is from 2011 but is has a lot of information in it. See the county report here: Clearwater Lake Water Quality. Water quality data have been collected on Clearwater Lake since 1979 These data show that the lake is mesotrophic, which is characteristic of moderately clear water throughout the summer and excellent recreational opportunities.
