District Awarded Clean Water Fund Grant

Accelerated Implementation Grant Awarded to Nine Mile Creek

Colonial Church in Edina learns how to best manage stormwater runoff

The Nine Mile Creek Watershed District is happy to announce that a project to target stormwater best management practice (BMP) implementation on lands owned by nonprofits has been awarded funding from the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) through the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.

The project will first prioritize project locations within the Watershed. Then the District will provide non-profit organizations with education and technical assistance to plan and design stormwater management practices on their site.

The District was awarded $83,339 to complete the project, which will begin this spring. BWSR funded 78 of the 171 applications it received.
