About the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District
In 1959, the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District was the first urban watershed district formed in Minnesota. It encompasses about 50 square miles in surface area around Nine Mile Creek. The District is located in Hennepin County and includes most of Edina, most of Bloomington, and portions of Minnetonka, Eden Prairie, Hopkins and Richfield. The name Nine Mile Creek is a little misleading because the main stem of the creek is actually 15 miles long. The south fork of the creek is 8.5 miles long. The creek got its name from early settlers in Minnesota. When they traveled west from Fort Snelling along Old Shakopee Road, the creek crossing was nine miles from the fort.
