The Clearwater River Watershed District owns and operates four communal sanitary sewer systems. There names are: Clearwater Harbor Sanitary Sewer System, Hidden River Sanitary Sewer System, Rest-A-While Sanitary Sewer System, and Wandering Pond Sanitary Sewer System. Clearwater Harbor is located along Grass Lake and Beachwood Road along Clearwater Lake in Stearns County. Hidden River is located adjacent to the northern end of Clearwater Harbor along the Clearwater River in Stearns County. Rest-A-While is located on Lake Louisa on Aspenwood Road in Stearns County. Wandering Pond is above Lake Louisa on the north end of Reed Court in Stearns County.
Both Clearwater Harbor and Hidden River are permitted by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Both systems were petitioned by Stearns County to be constructed and maintained by the District. Rest-A-While and Wandering Pond are permitted by Stearns County Environmental Services. Both systems were petitioned by two separate developers to be constructed and maintained by the District. The systems treat wastewater from serviced properties in a manner that protects the groundwater as well as the nearby surface waters from sewage pollution.
