5.8.7 Browndale Dam Scour Repair

ProjectBrowndale Dam Scour Repair
DescriptionRestore eroded base of dam and scour hole to prevent future structural damage
NeedThe Browndale Dam is a historic structure that lies at the outlet of the Mill Pond in the City of Edina. During the Plan Review process, the City of Edina solicited the involvement of MCWD in addressing erosion and scour issues occurring at the base of the dam. The City has proposed to design and implement structural improvements to counteract undercutting of the dam sill and stabilize a large scour hole at the downstream base of the structure. The District will work collaboratively with the City of Edina construct improvements. The specific share of construction cost as well as ongoing maintenance costs associated with these improvements would be determined by cooperative agreement prior to implementation of this project.
OutcomeProtection of public health and safety; stabilized streambed to reduce erosion
Estimated Cost and FundingFunding source for this project is the District capital levy. The specific share of construction cost as well as ongoing maintenance costs associated with these improvements would be determined by cooperative agreement prior to implementation of this project.$50,500
