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.
