Digging work started this week on the south end of Jennie Lake. County Road 56, which winds around the lake, is temporarily closed to traffic. The lake is being drained and re-flooded as part of a project to improve water quality and habitat. The fish, mainly minnows, will be killed off. Below, culverts and piping will soon be installed.
