- Many of the major wetlands in the
upper subwatershed were identified in the FAW as depressional discharge
wetlands. As development occurs it
will be important to maintain infiltration rates to help maintain hydrology
to these wetlands.
- The large wetland areas within the
watershed are highly sensitive to aquifer impacts.
- Wellhead Protection Area and
associated Drinking Water Sensitivity Management Area have been identified
for a City of Minnetrista
well within this subwatershed.
Stormwater management should be coordinated with wellhead
- Groundwater hydrology is an important
component in the base flow for area streams. Protecting existing groundwater flow
regimes must remain a priority.
