This project was completed as part of the 2012-2013 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Minnetonka. To improve water quality in Crane Lake, Minnetonka project lead and water resource engineer Liz Stout worked with students in CE 5511: Urban Hydrology and Land Development, to conduct a best management practice feasibility study for the Crane Lake Watershed. Based on their analysis, the students recommended increasing the frequency of street sweeping to collect leaves and other organic matter before they decompose and add nutrients to stormwater bound for the lake, as well as constructing a wet detention pond. The students' final report and presentation are available.
Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in CE 5511: Urban Hydrology and Land Development, taught by Dr. John Gulliver in spring 2013.
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.
