- The subwatershed includes several
wetlands with high to exceptional vegetative diversity, fish and wildlife habitat
and aesthetic values – many of them riparian to Minnehaha Creek or lakes
within the subwatershed - that need to be protected.
- Most of the wetlands in the
subwatershed have been impacted by development, as indicated by the lack
of wetlands with exceptional to high vegetative diversity given the size
of the subwatershed.
- Degraded wetlands with high to
moderate restoration potential should be considered for protection and
restoration to increase the quantity and quality of wetlands present and
begin to mitigate past wetland losses from fill and degradation.
