Drainage activities early in the 20th century attempted to drain land for agricultural production but that hope was never realized. The Fond du Lac band of Ojibway is attempting to reclaim and manage the lakes on the reservation for the production of wild rice through controlling the drainage. Understanding the hydrology of the watershed is important to manage the four water control structures to optimize wild rice production by minimizing the bounce on the lakes.
