h oward Lake GUIDEBOOK 2016-2017 compliance. Since 1996, the association has continued to monitor precipitation records and DNR lake levels, reporting them to the state. The association helped initiate the Wright County Lakes Monitoring Program in 1999, now in its 13th year. It monitors water clarity and sponsors testing for algae and phosphorous in the lake. Annual summer meetings and other events keep the community educated about association activities and goals. Wright Soil and Water received a grant to complete soil testing on watershed farmland in order to test variable fertilizer application which will reduce the mineral content of agricultural runoff. The Lake Ann Improvement Association has received additional DNR grants to control curly leaf pondweed in the lake for the last three years. Grant applications are being considered for other projects to control excess nutrients such as phosphorous which enter the lake from drainage ditches. The association has also designed and installed carp fences at the lake’s inlet in order to control the carp population. The association has cooperated with the farmers and with the SWCD to install various french drains and other diversions to minimize agricultural runoff into the streams and lakes, which earned the association the Outstanding Wright County Conservation Cooperator of the Year award from the Minnesota Association of SWCD in 2000. The association’s board of directors meets the third Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. For more information, or to become a member, contact association president Randell Smedstad at (320) 543-9498. Annual membership dues are $50. HL Area Chamber of Commerce The mission of the Howard Lake Area Chamber of Commerce(HLACC) is to promote a thriving community in the Howard Lake area.
