Sediment loads—the size of a city block filled to the height of the Foshay Tower in downtown Minneapolis—accumulate in Lake Pepin every year. With sedimentation rates 10x above normal, the lake is in a fight for survival. It has two water quality impairments and is expected to prematurely disappear in just a few generations.
There's has never been a better time to join the LPLA crew! LPLA has spearheaded a large restoration project in Upper Lake Pepin expected to improve water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and small boat navigation. Your membership helps LPLA stay at the helm and continue advocating for local communities.
