Woodland Cove is a planned development along the western shore of Lake Minnetonka, within
the city of Minnetrista. The pollutant loads of solids and total and dissolved phosphorous from
the development entering the lake are to be kept to a minimum in order to meet the
requirements from the local regulatory agencies, and therefore the developer is designing a
series of infiltration practices for storm water runoff.
Within this project, a number of infiltration measurements were performed at several locations
clustered at different sites in the area, to predict the efficiency of the planned practices. For this
report, a ‘location’ is where an individual infiltration measurement was performed and a ‘site’ is
a cluster of several infiltration measurements (locations). A high spatial variation in infiltration
rate is normally observed, so a number of measurement locations were needed at each site to
get a representative result. This report includes the results for the saturated hydraulic
conductivity of the soil, K, measured at 16 different sites within the area. The results are
presented in section 5.
