Project Overview

The City of Minnetonka and its residents highly value the water resources within the community, which include approximately ten lakes, four streams, and hundreds of wetlands. The City has been progressive in protecting these resources through policies and management strategies, and now wants to increase their on-the-ground efforts in protecting and improving water quality. The City hopes to conduct targeted watershed assessments for fourteen selected priority water bodies to identify and optimize the type and locations of Best Management Practices (BMPs) to be installed. Subwatershed assessments will evaluate the external sources of phosphorus to each of the selected water bodies, with the intent of identifying areas within each of the watersheds to focus stormwater management and water quality treatment efforts. This includes the development of a prioritized list of stormwater BMP retrofit projects intended to protect or improve water quality of the high priority water bodies, impaired lakes, and other valued resources. The prioritized list of BMPs for installation will be used to inform the City's stormwater CIP program to plan and budget for the implementation of these projects.
