Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
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 Glen Lake, Minnetonka project lead and water resource engineer Liz Stout worked with a team of students in CE 5511: Urban Hydrology and Land Development, to identify potential best management practices for the watershed. Based on their analysis, the students recommended more frequent street sweeping to prevent the release of nutrients from decomposing leaves and other organic matter, and the installation of hydrodynamic separators to reduce the amount of sediment in the water. 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 Gilliver 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.
