Public Notice

Posted 14 June 2019

At the request of a member of the public, the MCWD Board of Managers is considering MCWD permit application 18-536 as described below and is scheduled to take action on permit on June 25th, 2019 at 7 pm at the MCWD Office a. MCWD Rules require notice to all property owners within 600' of the proposed permitted area as a courtesy, in the event there are any questions or concerns.

18-536: The City of Orono has applied for a Minnehaha Creek Watershed District permit for Waterbody Crossings & Structures and Wetland Protection for stormsewer improvements along portions of Kelley Avenue and Fairview Lane in the City of Orono. There is a small permanent wetland impact proposed for the replacement of a deteriorated outfall and associated riprap for energy dissipation. The wetland impacts will meet WCA de minimis criteria for a utility replacement and will not require mitigation. To minimize site disturbance, the stormsewer pipes will be lined with a method referred to as cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP). The City has submitted plans that demonstrate that there will be no changes to the 100-year floodstage with the proposed improvements.

\If you would like to review the application materials in detail, please contact Heidi Quinn at hquinn@minnehahacreek.org or 952-641-4504 to make an appointment. If you plan to attend this meeting, please call to confirm that the permit application is on the agenda or check the MCWD website at https://www.minnehahacreek.org/about/board-managers/minutes-and-agenda-p....
