BAY TREATMENT PROGRAM

The Lake Minnetonka Association initiated a Curlyleaf Pondweed and Eurasian watermilfoil control project in 2008 under a Lake Vegetation Management Plan. The project initially involved Carmans, Grays and Phelps Bays and now includes the following bays::

 

  • Carsons/St. Louis Bay

  • Crystal Bay

  • Gideons Bay

  • Grays Bay

  • Harrisons Bay*

  • North Arm Bay

  • Crystal Bay

  • Phelps Bay

  • Smiths Bay*

  • Black Lake*

  • Browns Bay*

  • Maxwell Bay*

                         

The Lake Minnetonka Association serves as program manager. The Lake Minnetonka Association Board

of Directors appoints Bay Captains for bays where lakeshore owners have expressed an interest in participating in

the program. Bay Captains coordinate are responsible for fundraising and to oversee treatments in their bays.

While the Minnesota Departmetn of Natural Resoruces, and the cities of Tonka Bay and Excelsior provide some

funds to the bay treatment program, most of the funds come from lakeshore owners and businesses.

 

St. Albans Bay and Carmans, which were once part of the Bay Treatment Program, have established Lake Improvement Districts. Lake Improvement Districts are run by a local board made up of shoreland owners and raise funds for aquatic invasive species control funding is collected through a special property tax assessment.

 

The Bay Treatment Program has been highly successful and the Lake Minnetonka Association plans to continue the program - (for additional information, contact the Lake Minnetonka Association).

 

*Bays interested in joining the program in 2022.
