Long-term lake level records are useful for regulatory decision-making, building/development decisions, lake hydrology manipulation decisions, and investigation of possible non-natural impacts. ACD implements a lake level monitoring program on 23 lakes throughout the county. A gauge is installed in each lake and surveyed so that readings coincide with sea level elevations. The gauge is read weekly by a volunteer who reports to ACD.

ACD reports all lake level data to the MNDNR. The data is available through the "LakeFinder" feature on the MNDNR website, along with other information about each lake.
