Ward One Community Forum: NE Stormwater Management Initiative

  • Mississippi Watershed Management Organization 2522 Marshall Street Northeast Minneapolis, MN, 55418 United States (map)

Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, the City of Minneapolis Public Works Department and Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board have identified some opportunities to improve flood resiliency, reduce pollutant loading to the Mississippi and improve the area's ecological health in the area of the Columbia Golf Course. After several years of monitoring and developing detailed stormwater models, the three jurisdictions are partnering on an initiative to begin implementing innovative stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs), such as tree trenches and biofiltration and infiltration basins.

Join Council Member Reich, Stephanie Johnson from Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, and Public Works and Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board staff to learn more about this initiative:
