White Bear Lake needs more rain to restore water level, DNR says

According to Pioneer Press, on Thursday, 100 other residents listened to hydrologists and climatologists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources explain why the lake level has fallen five feet over the past three summers.
The meeting was timely -- the lake reached a new all-time low days before, hitting 919.65 feet above sea level, down from the normal watermark of 924.89 feet above sea level, according to DNR data.
According to the Star Tribune, the DNR said, "We need more rain. The water's being pumped away by housing developments or other cities. Let's just open up the dam."
