Background

The water level of Twin Lake in northwestern Little Canada began to rise in the summer of 2016.  It went to a higher level than any resident living on the lake had ever seen.  The level has not receded so the area property owners asked the City and the Ramsey Washington Metro Watershed District (RWMWD) to gather information on the lake and try to provide answers for the rapid rise and the sustained high level of the lake.
