 Our Mission 
We are a non-profit district working to preserve and protect our water body by partnering with our community leaders to promote a clean, and healthy environment for all citizens by using education along with proven water management practices to improve our water resource. 

 Our Vision 
Our vision is for a community where our residents and general public benefit from the human conveniences that we have incorporated to ensure that Friendship Lake is not compromised in quality or quantity as a valued water resource. Our vision is a community that regularly uses, enjoys, and assists in conservation efforts to keep and maintain this lake for future generations. 
Did you know that if you cannot make the board meeting in person, you can call into the meeting and hear what is going on? If you are interested in finding out how to do this, please email Tina Meinen at and I will walk you through the set up process.

What's going on with the Lake?
DAM UPDATE: January 9, 2019

Peter Haug, from Ayres Engineering confirmed that the online contractor bid release date for the Friendship Lake Dam project is set for January 15, 2019. This means that the job specs will be open for bidding to contractors via an online bidding website. Contractors have until February 13, 2019, at 11:00 am to prepare and present their bids to the Friendship Lake District for the DNR Municipal Dam Grant. At that time the bids are opened, read out loud, and documented by two of our board of commissioners, specifically Karen and our chairman Bob Berry. The bids are then sent onto our engineering firm, Ayres Engineering for review and oversight. After that has been completed Ayres submits all of the qualified bids to the DNR who review and approve the contractor for project. The DNR Municipal Dam Grant requires Friendship Lake District take the lowest Qualified bid for the project. Our engineer on the project Peter Haug is predicting that we will know the awarded contractor around April 1, 2019. At this time we cannot predict when the project will begin. We do know that we will need a full draw down of Friendship Lake and that would take about four weeks to complete. As soon as we have that information it will be shared via our website and by email.
