One of the most significant ways the Minnehaha Creek
Watershed District (MCWD) partners with residents, business owners, and local
governments to improve water quality is through a wide variety of grant
programs. The programs offer financial and other assistance to develop good solutions
that will improve water management and quality, while helping property owners
enjoy their property to the fullest extent possible.
For example, grants are currently available for replacing
failing septic systems, installing rain gardens or improving the shorelines of
a nearby stream or lake.

your community can partner with the MCWD to protect local water resources.
