ecosystem
 
we
 
applaud
 
efforts
 
to
 
pass
 
HF461
 
and
 
SF248
 
as
 
critical
 
to
 
the
 
survival
 
of 
 
the
 
Shaver’s
 
Lake
 
diverse,
 
unique
 
eco
system.
 
A
 
healthy
 
lake
 
is
 
key
 
to
 
the
 
area’s
 
wildlife,
 
birds
 
and
 
other
 
animals
 
.
 
a
 
cattail
 
marsh
 
destroys
 
the
 
ecosystem
 
and
 
35
45%
 
of 
 
property
 
values.
 
For
 
a
 
little
 
lake
 
like
 
Shaver’s
 
this
 
represents
 
an
 
estimated
 
$400,000
 
of 
 
annual
 
property
 
taxes,
 
which
 
could
 
be
 
lost.
 
We
 
believe
 
the
 
plight
 
of 
 
Shaver’s
 
Lake
 
is
 
representative
 
of 
 
what
 
is
 
facing
 
many
 
other
 
lakes,
 
lakes
 
associations
 
and
 
other

OWNERS
Since
 
1961
 
the
 
Cities
 
of 
 
Minnetonka
 
and
 
Dee haven
 
have
 
constructed
 
five
 
storm
 
sewer
 
systems
 
to
 
discharge
 
untreated
 
storm
 
water
 
runoff 
 
into
 
our
 
lake
Over
 
the
 
years
 
this
 
untreated
 
storm
 
water
 
has
 
poured
 
sediment
 
into
 
the
 
lake
 
covering
 
the
 
gravel
 
lake
 
bottom
 
with
 
n ne
 
eet
 
o

This
 
sediment
 
is
 
a
 
rich
 
soil
 
for
 
propagating
 
cattails
 
which
 
have
 
increasingly
 
infested
 
our
 
lake
 
(See,
 
pictures)
After
 
assessing
 
Shaver’s
 
Lake,
 
Dick
 
Osgood,
 
our
 
lake
 
,
 
“tipping
 
point”
 
of 
 
becoming
 
a
 
cattail
 
marsh
We
 
have
 
explained
 
our
 
plight
 
to
 
the
 
DNR
 
and
 
have
 
sought
 
permits
 
to
 
cut
 
cattails.
 
But
 
under
 
current
 
DNR
 
regulations
 
these
 
cattails
 
are
 
rotected
 
and
 
cannot
 
be
 
removed
 
exce t
 
in
 
very
 
limited
 
circumstances)
Without
 
the
 
passage
 
of 
 
HR461
 
and
 
SF
 
421,
 
to
 
modify
 
the
 
unreasonable
 
DNR
 
regulations,
 
Shaver’s
 
Lake,
 
and
 
many
 
other
 
lakes,
 
will
 
no
 
longer
 
be
 
lakes—and
 
move
 
beyond
 
the

rate.
