3.5 Groundwater

  1. As described in Section 2.5.6 and Figure 17, there are areas in the subwatershed that are highly sensitive to aquifer impacts. 
  2. The FAW identified several large recharge wetlands in the subwatershed. As development occurs it will be important to maintain hydrology to them to preserve groundwater recharge.
  3. A Wellhead Protection Area and associated Drinking Water Sensitivity Management Area for a City of Minnetrista well have been identified within this subwatershed.  Stormwater management within those areas should be coordinated with wellhead protection plans.
