Olson Lake to be drained


SPICER -- A shallow 140-acre lake in the southwest part of Kandiyohi County will be drained dry this fall so invasive species of rough fish can be killed off.

Olson Lake, located in Edwards Township, will then be restored to it current water level so vegetation can grow to create a good habitat for waterfowl.

Following a public hearing Tuesday, the Kandiyohi County Commissioners agreed to allow the water to be discharged into Ditch 31.
