The District is conducting a water quality study on Arrowhead and Indianhead Lakes in Edina.
The District is undertaking a water quality study, called a Use Attainability Analysis (UAA), to identify potential water quality improvement projects to improve the overall health of the lakes. This UAA will be complete in late 2021 or early 2022.
