19-063: Public Notice

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) is reviewing Permit 19-063 for conformance with the District’s rules. CenterPoint Energy is proposing to install approximately 5 miles of natural gas pipeline via open trench from approximately 60th Street East and Portland Avenue South to approximately 29th Street East and 15th Avenue South in the City of Minneapolis (see attached site map). MCWD regulates the project under our Erosion Control and Floodplain Alteration rules. The natural gas line will tie into an existing connection approximately 30 feet away from the south bank of Minnehaha Creek and approximately 90 feet from away from the north bank of Minnehaha Creek and will not require directional boring under the Creek. The work within the 100-year floodplain will be temporary and restored to existing grade conditions.

Contact Heidi Quinn with questions or concerns regarding the permit at hquinn@minnehahacreek.org or 952-641-4504. Additional information about the project can be found on the CenterPoint Energy website.

Permits are reviewed by staff for compliance with District rules. Interested parties may request that the permit be considered by the MCWD Board of Managers. Requests for Board consideration must be in writing and received at the MCWD offices prior to 4:30 PM, April 1st, 2019.
