This project was completed as part of the 2015-2016 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Carver County. Concerned about phosphorus loading and locations of rainwater runoff treatment practices in the area around Lake Waconia, Carver County project lead Charlie Sawdey partnered with students in CEGE 5511: Urban Hydrology and Water Quality, to develop a set of recommendations for the County. Based on their analysis, the students recommended that Carver County reduce phosphorus input to Lake Waconia through rain gardens, infiltration basins, and iron-enhanced sand filters. The final poster, presentation, and report are available.
Report, presentation, and poster completed by students enrolled in CEGE 5511: Urban Hydrology and Water Quality, taught by Dr. John Gulliver in Spring 2016.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative, course-based projects.
