The City of Eagan is hosting two meetings on the Neighborhood Lakes Project on Dec. 11 and 12. 

The project is "a study of 12 lakes partially funded by the a grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and co-sponsored by the Gun Club Lake Watershed Management Organization." 

On Dec. 11, the meetings will focus on Bald, Bur Oaks, LeMay, North and O’Leary lakes. On Dec. 12 the meetings will focus on Carlson, Cliff, Fitz, Hay, Holz, Quigley and Southern Lakes.

Eagan has already completed diagnostic tests on four lakes, according to a city news release: Fish, Schwanz, Blackhawk and Thomas lakes.

"Based on what we have learned about water quality challenges and solutions, we're expediting the approach to evaluate 12 other lakes," said Eagan Water Resources Manager Eric Macbeth in the release. 

Following the Neighborhood Lakes diagnostic project, Eagan will implement strategies on the 12 lakes similar to those currently used on the original four lakes to limit stormwater runoff and  address phosporus levels, according to the city.

Each meeting will occur between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. with a formal presentation at 7 p.m. Residents can come and go at any time during the meeting.

The city is hosting the meetings at city hall in the Eagan Room.
