Permit #20-624; Kenilworth Channel Stabilization and Naturalization

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) is reviewing a permit #20-624 for compliance with District rules. The Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board is proposing to replace an existing timber retaining wall along the streambank of the Kenilworth Channel, and replacing it with a reconstructed, naturalized streambank. MCWD regulates the project under our Erosion Control, Floodplain Alteration, and Shoreline & Streambank Stabilization rules. The project will provide additional flood storage, and will be revegetated with native seed.


Contact Cole Thompson with questions or concerns regarding the permit at or 952-641-4521.


 Permits are reviewed by staff for compliance with District rules. Interested parties may request that the permit be considered by the MCWD Board of Managers. Requests for board consideration must be submitted to Cole by email prior to February 25th, 2021.
