Minnetonka, MN 55345


Important Note:

Grading and excavating must not begin until the applicant has been noticed that a permit has been issued and required erosion control measures are in place. Working without a permit where required is in violation of MCWD Rules and is a misdemeanor subject to penalty by law.
