Administrator Anderson received correspondence from Eric Altena, DNR Fisheries. Eric indicated that in his estimation, phosphorus control in runoff between Henshaw and Swartout Lakes would be minimal on State of Minnesota land. He also indicated that much more phosphorus could be trapped on private land. Eric asked for CRWD comments on small mouth bass stocking in the reach of the Clearwater River from Grass Lake to the City of Clearwater. The CRWD Board of Managers strongly support stocking of small mouth bass in that area.

Administrator Anderson explained that sewer hookups are not being inspected in the Lakes of Fairhaven Development Community Sewer System.

Administrator Anderson informed the Board that to his knowledge, the property owners of the proposed site for sediment basins in the Cedar Lake alum/ferric chloride treatment area have not visited a similar site with Engineer Norm Wenck.

Administrator Anderson recently requested permission from the Meeker County Board to expand the Nistler Sediment Basin. The Meeker County Board authorized construction of the expansion.

Motion #WS-06-05-03: Motion Schiefelbein, seconded by Risberg to authorize the attached maintenance plan for the Nistler Sediment Basin.
All Managers voted aye.

Administrator Anderson indicated that at the next CRWD Work Session, the managers would tour Wandering Ponds Development, Lakes of Fairhaven Development, and Bass Lake.
