Wildlife managers have begun drawing down the water of Lake Christina in Douglas County to improve habitat and water quality on the popular destination for hunters and wildlife watchers.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will use the lake’s permanent pump system to lower the lake as much as 3 feet below the “normal” water level. The hope is to limit the survival of unwanted fish in the lake and to ensure shallower water for aquatic plants during the growing season next year.
