RICE -- The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Little Rock Lake Association Board will be holding several information sessions regarding a proposed drawdown to help restore water quality to the lake.

Studies show over 40% of Minnesota's lakes are polluted and Little Rock Lake is in the top 4% of the most polluted lakes in the state.

Representatives from the Department of Natural Resources, Eagle Creek Energy, Benton County Soil & Water and the Board of Directors from the Little Rock Lake Association will be in attendance to provide information, updates and answer questions.

The sessions will be held at the Watab Township Hall Friday from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and September 27th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
