Between 2011 and 2012, the MCWD's Low Impact Development program helped pay for stormwater management improvements during five municipal road reconstruction projects in Wayzata, Minnetonka, Excelsior and Mound.

Excelsior (2011)

  • 427 pounds of total suspended solids

Minnetonka (2011)

  • 1195 pounds of total suspended solids

Wayzata Blvd (2012)
