MCWD’s permitting staff are always available to help you navigate the permitting process and to make sure your site is in compliance. We occasionally offer workshops on topics such as erosion and sediment control or shoreline rip-rap.

Lake Minnetonka: Yesterday and Today
Promote your business with a beautiful, full color map of Lake Minnetonka, featuring water quality information and a narrative of the history of the lake area. We’ll work with you to customize the map with an imprint of your corporate logo and company information.
Minnesota is famous for its clean water, abundance of lakes, and friendly citizens. The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District is a resource for protecting these assets. For educating local officials and municipal staff on these topics, we have the following to offer:
We have a number of displays and exhibits available for events or simply to have on display at city hall or your local library. Contact us and we may be able to attend your community festival or event. We’ll bring along our displays and exhibits, hand out goodies and have a person available to answer watershed questions.
The Enviroscape interactive watershed model allows you to sprinkle ‘pollution’ (colored powder) and then see what happens when it ‘rains’ (spray bottle) on the watershed. Learn more about the Enviroscape.
The fund is available to nonprofit citizen groups and other organizations to fund water-related educational programs and projects, as well as innovative water quality improvement and stormwater management projects. See our CKWSF page for more information.
