Floating logs, damaged docks, dislodged weeds, or trash. Any items that are floating free in the water present hazards to boaters, fishers, and wildlife. The prevailing winds on the lake tend to drive this debris into the corners of the lake, i.e., Mokins Bay and the far reaches of the North Arm. In the spring, the Watershed Improvement District sponsors a Debris Removal from Mokins Bay. At other times of the year, we depend on one another to be good citizens, to remove hazards from the water, and dispose of them properly for everyone’s safety and health.
Lake debris collection is now closed. The Hayden Lake Watershed Improvement District will ensure that all permitted debris that has been staged in Mokins Bay is removed by the end of June. If you have any questions or concerns regarding current or future debris removal, please contact Todd Walker, the HL Lake Manager, at (208)771-0525.
As posted previously, we are collecting abandoned, derelict docks and debris, liberated by winter weather and
