10/26/2018 - Big Sand Lake - Water Quality Report

Big Sand Lake has two inlets and one outlet, which classifies it as a drainage lake. The inlets enter from Emma Lake and a wetland area. The outlet is located at the south end of the lake, and flows through Ida Lake into Little Sand Lake. From Little Sand Lake, the water flows through many other lakes, and ends up draining into the Crow Wing River. Read the full report...

10/04/2018 - Hubbard County Coalition of Lake Associations

Welcome to Hubbard County Coalition of Lake Associations (HC COLA) 2018 "Eyes on the Water" on-line survey. I invite you to participate in this very important "Eyes on the Water" survey and help us prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species in Hubbard County. HC COLA continues to expand our "Eyes on the Water" with over 220 volunteers joining our lake monitoring campaign in 2018. We hope you become one of them too.


With the discovery of Eurasian Water Milfoil in Bad Axe Lake, Zebra Mussels in Garfield Lake and the more recent discovery of Starry Stonewort in Wolf Lake in northern Hubbard County, it is essential for lake associations in Hubbard County to expand their "eyes on the water" looking for AIS. Early detection is the best defense if a lake is infested with an invasive species.


The survey will take approximately 5 to 7 minutes to complete. Should you have any questions about this study, please contact Dan Kittilson at, 218-732-5566 or Jeff Mosner at, 218-732-0707.

Please use the following link to participate in the survey:


Thank you for your time and consideration of this survey.

Good article on MPR about Wright County’s Regional Pilot Program in the fight against AIS. We welcome any comments.

Stary Stonewort found in Hubbard County. Another reason to be vigilant as you take out boats, docks, and lifts this fall.
