Erin Hunker appointed to Board of Managers

Five managers, appointed by Hennepin County Commissioners to three-year terms, direct the activities of the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District. The Board of Managers works with state agencies, Hennepin County and the cities within the District to implement the approved water management plan set forth in state law. Watershed district activities are funded through property tax levies.

Thank you Corrine

Corrine Lynch, after serving since 1999 on the board of managers, decided not to seek reappointment. Her term expired in September 2017. The District is thankful for Corrine’s dedicated service to the District, and for the leadership she provided. Corrine helped hire the first employees of the District, guided the District through updating its water management plans and rules, through the building of its office at Discovery Point, saw the completion of a major streambank restoration project on Nine Mile Creek, and the start of another, along with many other projects that helped improve the District’s water resources.

Welcome to new manager, Erin

In September, Hennepin County Commissioners reappointed Jodi Peterson to her third term on the board. In addition, the commissioners appointed Erin Hunker to fill the vacant position on the board left by Corrine Lynch. Erin is a professional engineer. She has 15 years of experience in drainage and water resources planning, engineering and design that she brings to the board. Erin is also a volunteer Minnesota Water Steward for the District.


We look forward to working with Erin as our newest Board member.
