Our mission is to preserve the environmental integrity of Pike Lake and the contiguous area, guaranteeing the ongoing availability of the lake for recreational use. We also wish to serve as a vehicle of information regarding the interests of the property owners who live around and on Pike Lake.

Pike Lake had chloride concentrations considerably higher than the ecoregion expectations. This is most likely due to “urban” runoff.

AIS Inspections (THank you Canosia TOWNSHIP)

20170820_135607.jpg

The 2017 public landing educational inspections are underway.  The Pike Lake Association is very grateful for Canosia Township’s management of the program.  Please thank your Canosia Township Supervisors.  The total budgeted hours for 2017 are 1200 for Pike Lake and 800 for Caribou Lake.  The program is staffed by eight certified inspectors managed by Alyssa Hagemeyer.

The inspectors received all day training and were tested on Saturday May 6, 2017 at the Canosia Town Hall. All inspectors were given a written exam and were required to score 80% or higher to become certified.

The training was done by Jessica Moore of the MN DNR. She is an AIS Trainer. Also on hand was a MN DNR officer, who brought a boat to the training site. This allowed the inspectors to have firsthand training on what, and where, to look for invasive species.

Canosia Township is Supervising the AIS Program. You may direct any questions to Kevin L. Comnick, Canosia Supervisor @ 590-6473. E-mail is comnick@msn.com.
