Minnehaha Creek Gravel Removal
During the week of August 19th crews completed the installation of water services and fire hydrants for the project.
During the week of August 26th crews will begin removing gravel buildup in Minnehaha Creek at the storm sewer outlet. A large excavator will remove the gravel material but leave the natural creek bed intact. Erosion and sediment control measures have been installed to contain any disturbed material within the work area.
Following the gravel removal crews will begin replacement of the storm sewer with treatment structures that will contain sediment and prevent it from entering Minnehaha Creek.
