Group Meets to Discuss Little Wall Lake
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa officials and conservation leaders have met to discuss management of Little Wall Lake in Hamilton County.
The state Department of Natural Resources met with Hamilton County Conservation Board members Tuesday to work on a management plan for the 256-acre lake.
The two sides have disagreed on water level issues. DNR has been in favor of the shallow lake experiencing natural drought cycles. Lake residents want to increase the water level for recreation during drought years.
DNR was against pumping water from a source with high levels of phosphorus. Among the proposals by DNR on Tuesday was a cool weather low dose chemical treatment plan.
The working group will continue to search for an alternative outside water source.
