Heavy rains have been beneficial to wetlands

Email

Yes, we got a lot of rain in May and June causing damage in many areas but it could have been much worse had we not had an abundance of bogs, swamps and lakes to serve as storage reservoirs.

The lake I have lived on four 40 years here in Crow Wing County is still not as high as it was in 1975 and it could still hold more water. It does not have a stream or river so it is not subject to excessive amounts of water although some docks did get topped.
