State says city won't get storm water credits for Grass Lake project, but project planning continues
WILLMAR -- Construction activities could begin next year on the 1,200-acre Grass Lake restoration project, even though the city of Willmar is no longer a participant.
The city had been working with Kandiyohi County, state agencies and other groups for the past 20 years on an initiative to restore Grass Lake, located adjacent to Willmar on the southeast side of the Highway 71/23 bypass. The shallow Grass Lake basin was drained decades ago by the county and landowners for farmland.
