Stormwater Runoff Will be Directed Toward Irrigation Ponds


Although Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes that doesn’t mean water is an inexhaustible resource. Woodbury Minnesota has an innovative idea in order to use stormwater runoff from a 1.75-mile stretch of County Road 19 to use as irrigation for nearby Eagle Valley and Prestwick golf course.

The runoff right now is draining into nearby lakes, causing algae growth because of the high phosphorous content. As a result, nearby Colby Lake has been added to Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s impaired waters list.

Klayton Eckles, Woodbury’s city engineer believes this is an effort to reduce the overall water footprint or draw on the aquifer. Water demands as well as years of successive drought have led to new conservation measures such as the County Road 19 Project and he hopes it will become a model for other projects.
