Pine Lake Outlet - Project 26

Project Location

Project 26 is located near the south center of Section 21, Pine Lake Township, in Clearwater County. It is situated on the Lost River about 800 feet from the north shore of Pine Lake. The drainage area upstream of the structure is 45 square miles.

Design Considerations

In 1980, the Clearwater County Board of Commissioners petitioned the Red Lake Watershed District for an improvement of the Pine Lake outlet that would provide the public with flood control measures and wildlife benefits. The project, completed in 1981, consisted of a sheet pile dam with two adjustable stop log bays. The Gonvick Lions Club also operates a nearby aeration system to improve fish habitat in the lake.
