When the water level is on "High Water" status, all watercraft must travel at no-wake speeds (5 miles per hour (MPH) or less). When the status is "Normal" watercraft traffic may resume regular activity.
Lake level readings are taken once per week during the open water season. During periods of high water, the lake level is checked more frequently. ___________________________________________________
At almost 300 acres in size, Crystal Lake is Burnsville’s largest lake. It’s a popular recreation destination that offers a public boat launch, fishing pier and public beach.
The City harvests Curly-leaf Pondweed on Crystal Lake every year in an effort to control this invasive species and reduce nuisance plant growth. Harvesting activities can result in some additional cut plant material washing up on private shoreline areas. To assist residents in disposing of this material, the City will be conducting one round of curbside pickups for aquatic plant material on June 14th. For more information and to register for a pickup, please fill out the form. Only properties who have filled out the form will receive a pickup.
