 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: December 6, 2018

Our engineering firm, Ayres Associates, has submitted the final draft of the specs for repairs to the DNR. As soon as the DNR has approved the plans a permit will be issued to the Friendship Lake District to proceed with the contracting bid process. This process requires posting of the bids in the local newspaper and sending the job electronically to all certified qualified contractors. This service is part of our agreement with and provided by our engineering firm. Our engineer on the project, Peter Haug, plans on opening the bids in early January. These bids will have specified due date and have to be hand delivered to one of our board members on that date. The bids will be reviewed by our board and our engineer to make sure they meet all of the specifications noted for the job and included in the grant. Our plan is to have these repairs completed as soon as possible after the spring thaw of 2019 and time allowed to complete a total drawdown of the lake bed.  

Save the Date:
Saturday, May 18, 2019 for our 21st Spring Fling.
