Lake Augusta Bog Removal
Bog removal has been a long debated topic in many lakes in Minnesota; it certainly is a topic of Discussion/Frustration for Lake Augusta property owners. Especially in the Spring or during high water periods. There are Statutes and Guidelines published by the DNR that outline many of the ways to deal with them. You can view these Guidelines on the DNR Website at: https://www.revisor.mn.gov/rules/?id=6280.0250 (Aquatic Plants and Nuisance Bogs statute 6280.0250)
Each spring the Lake Augusta Association submits a Permit Application with the DNR for Bog removal. This permit allows the Lake Association to remove problematic Bogs that are larger than 15 feet by 15 feet in size. In these cases the DNR or other Agencies may at their discretions advise or assist in the removal of the bog. This cost is paid for out of the Lake Augusta Bog Fund, funded by the Lake Augusta property owners.
You can see a copy of the permit for 2014 under Board Announcements, document number 14F-3B078
