The MCWD Board of Managers will hold a Public Hearing on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. for the Minnehaha Creek FEMA Repairs Project. The project is located along Minnehaha Creek in Minneapolis.

Approximately 4.19% of the ad valorem costs will be allocated to Carver County and 95.81% will be allocated to Hennepin County.

If the Board finds that the project will be conducive to public health, promote the general welfare, and is consistent with the MCWD Watershed Management Plan, they will order and formally establish the project.  The meeting will be held at the MCWD Offices, 15320 Minnetonka Boulevard, Minnetonka, MN 55345.
