Zebra Mussels confirmed in Lake Pulaski!

Zebra Mussels were confirmed on May 16, 2022. Please read this article from the DNR for more information.

Home Owners:

The LID is working diligently on this unfortunate news that we received on the 16th of May 2022.  We know that you have a lot of questions and concerns and we will continue to update this page when we have more information.

5/18/22: The LID is currently working with the City to get divers into Buffalo Lake and the DNR to get screens approved and installed so that we can pump if we reach pumping stage at 966.00 (currently at 965.29) and when Buffalo Lake recedes to 915.50 (currently at 916.94 and rising).  There are still a lot of unknowns of what we can and cannot do at this point.
