Project Overview

This project will increase the ability of the Carver County Water Management Organization (CCWMO) to approach local community partners and fund projects that treat stormwater runoff at the source instead of treating stormwater downstream at a regional pond or through other large scale best management practices (BMPs). The CCWMO will target three geographic areas that have demonstrated strong community involvement, effective partner relationships, and support for the goal of improving water quality of locally impaired waters or regionally significant water body. The first targeted area is around the East Creek Chain of Lakes in the City of Chaska, the second is located around Benton Lake in the City of Cologne, and the third within the City of Waconia protecting Lake Waconia, the third largest lake in the Twin Cities metro area and a regionally significant resource. Our goal for these funds is the installation of 6 to 8 projects that aim to reduce the amount of impervious surfaces or provide treatment for previously untreated areas through the use of Low Impact Development Best Management Practices. These practices include, but are not limited to, porous pavement, stormwater re-use, rain gardens, sand-iron filter trenches, bio-swales, and bio-filtration.
