Project Overview

The goal of this project is to evaluate projected water demand, groundwater contamination and potential natural resource impacts in southern Washington County to ensure water supplies are developed sustainably. An important part of this project involves working with stakeholders to identify common goals and objectives, as well as ways to enhance coordination amongst water suppliers and water resource managers. Partners include state agencies, Washington County, watershed districts and the cities of Woodbury, Cottage Grove, Stillwater, Oak Park Heights, Bayport, Lake Elmo, Oakdale, Landfall, Newport, and Saint Paul Park.

The project includes conducting technical analyses to evaluate water availability, effects of projected demands on natural resources including the Valley Branch trout stream, and migration of known groundwater contaminant plumes. Supply options will be developed to address issues identified in the process.
