This project was completed as part of the 2012-2013 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Minnetonka. In light of redevelopment and expansion of the Ridgedale Mall, the City of Minnetonka was concerned about managing additional storm water runoff from the mall site. Minnetonka project lead and water resources engineer Liz Stout partnered with students in CE 5511: Urban Hydrology and Land Development, to develop recommendations for the site. The students found that infiltration was the most efficient option for the City, and recommended installation of rain gardens and tree trenches in parking lots. 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.
