Posted 16 August 2019

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) is reviewing Permit Application #19- 428 for conformance with the District’s rules. The City of Minnetonka is applying for an after-the-fact permit for an emergency culvert replacement under Crosby Road in the City of Minnetonka. The emergency repair took place on May 27th, 2019 after the culvert collapsed which resulted in the road flooding, prohibiting residential and emergency vehicle access to the homes adjacent to Lake Minnetonka. MCWD regulates the project under our Waterbody Crossings & Structures and Wetland Protection rules. The metal arch culvert is to be replaced with a box culvert and will not impact the 100-year floodstage of Lake Minnetonka.
