60th Street and 1st Avenue Pond
A regional stormwater pond was constructed at 60th Street and 1st Avenue in Minneapolis to minimize local flooding problems and improve water quality. The pond is designed primarily for stormwater storage to alleviate frequent flooding in the vicinity of the 60th Street and 1st Avenue intersection. The pond is anticipated to remove about 100 pounds of phosphorus annually from the 194-acre drainage area. The reduction in phosphorus will primarily benefit Diamond Lake. This was a joint project between the City of Minneapolis, the Minnesota Department of Transportation, and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District.
