About

Lake Zumbro Forever, Inc is dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the beauty, environmental character, recreational quality, and regional value of Lake Zumbro.

Lake Zumbro has filled with a large amount of silt since its creation in 1919. Silt has impaired water quality, adversely affected plant and animal species, made the depth of the lake shallower, limited recreational use and impaired the function of the hydroelectric power dam. Businesses have suffered due to loss of water depth on the lake.

Efforts to restore Lake Zumbro have progressed, and hopefully dredging is proposed to begin in 2015. Restoration will improve the water quality as well as:

  • prevent long range environmental pollution
  • promote health of plant and animal species
  • open up the area for recreational use
  • improve the efficiency of the  hydroelectric dam
