Project Overview

This project engages private property owners including non-profits, businesses, and institutions, in the Harrison Neighborhood of Near North Minneapolis to install storm water best management practices. The BMPs will reduce pollution in Bassett Creek including chlorides and bacteria, for which the creek is impaired. The primary focus is on Glenwood Avenue, a focal point in the community and a highly impervious area. We plan to engage a minimum of six property owners to install practices that filter/infiltrate storm water runoff, diminish localized flooding, create native habitat, and beautify the neighborhood.
