Access DNR Lake Info through NorthstarMLS!

Viewing a listing with Lake information? Now you and your clients can click the DNR Lake ID number to go directly to the DNR website page with information on that lake. The link is available on the Property Full, Customer Full and Customer Lake displays for both Minnesota and Wisconsin listings (except Lots & Land where it will be added soon).  Here is a sample screenshot from a display:

Minnesota
The link will take you to the main DNR page for that link, with links to subpages such as lake information, lake maps, lake water quality, etc. The availability of a subpage will be indicated by the word “go” in red font that you can click for more info. If there are multiple DNR ID numbers for a particular lake (such as the many bays of Lake Minnetonka), they will all be listed on this main DNR page.  Here is an example.

Wisconsin
The Wisconsin DNR site format is a little different. They have tabs along the top that you can click for more information.  Here is an example.
