Location: St. Paul, Minnesota
Client: Capitol Region Watershed District
In 2016, the Capitol Region Watershed District hired HEI to complete an inventory of storm sewers in Como Park, document constructed best management practices in the Como Lake Watershed, and analyze existing pollutant loads delivered to Como Lake.
Natural wild rice in Lake Ogechie of Minnesota was nearly gone before HEI restored the Ogechie and Buckmore Dams that improved water levels needed for naturally reproducing wild rice.
Under Minnesota Rule Chapter 103D, the RCWD is required to update their Watershed Management Plan (WMP) at least once in every 10-year period. The WMP must address not only surface and groundwater issues, but can include natural resource, wetland, or other important concerns of the District. HEI drafted the previous plan for the RCWD, and is currently working with their Board on a strategic planning process that will inform the upcoming plan update.
