The MCWD is reviewing the following permit application.  MCWD Rules require notice to all property owners within 600' of the proposed permitted area as a courtesy, in the event there are any questions or concerns.

17-171:  Scott Murphy has applied for a Minnehaha Creek Watershed District permit for Shoreline Stabilization for a bioengineering stabilization project located at 3880 Lone Cedar Ln, Chaska. The project would result in approximately 108 feet of hard armoring in conjunction with native plant establishment for soil stabilization, erosion control, and enhancement of local biodiversity.  Native plants along shorelines help to increase water quality and are important for a balanced urban ecology.  The shoreline affected is on Minnewashta Lake. 

Individuals with questions or concerns regarding this permit may contact Luke Menden at 952-641-4586 or

Interested parties may request that a public hearing on this permit application be scheduled before the MCWD Board of Managers.  Requests for a public hearing must be in writing and received at the MCWD offices prior to 4:30 PM, May 8th, 2017.
