Brink Lake Restoration Project

After nearly five years of planning and cooperation, the restoration of Brink Lake, located about six miles southwest of Detroit Lakes in Becker County, finally became a reality in late 2014. The planning for the project began in 2008 when a group of 5 landowners started looking for ways to restore the drained lakebed. With the assistance of the local Soil and Water Conservation District, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and representatives of Ducks Unlimited and the Minnesota Waterfowl Association, these landowners eventually submitted applications and were approved for enrollment into the Reinvest in Minnesota –WetlandsReserve(RIM-WRP) program.

The RIM – WRP program has since secured perpetual conservation easements on the properties and has provided technical and financial support to aide in the restoration of the lake and surround uplands.
