Roseau Lake


Description / Location:

Back Next

Roseau Lake is in NW Minnesota between the town of Roseau and the Canadian Border. The lake was drained in the early 1900's for agricultural purposes. Attempts to farm the lake basin have been abandoned due to frequent flooding. Currently, Roseau Lake and the surrounding lands flood on a frequency between 1-yr and 2-yrs. This frequent flooding leads to lost crops or greatly reduced yields and lost waterfowl production.

The stated purpose of the project is flood damage reduction & improved habitat for waterfowl, fish and other wildlife. This will be achieved with the construction of embankments and control structures along the Roseau River to better time the flood storage in the Roseau Lake basin.
