Blaine to Partner on Clean Water Project in Aurelia Park

The City of Blaine is partnering with the Coon Creek Watershed District (CCWD) to construct a new stormwater pond in the southwest corner of Aurelia Park. The pond is part of an ongoing effort by the City to enhance water quality in the area. This pond will act as a filter by allowing pollutants to settle, it will also provide water storage during large rain storms, and enable stormwater to be used to water the park grass. The funding for this project is through a State of Minnesota Clean Water Land and Legacy Grant, the City stormwater utility fund, and the CCWD.

At the time many neighborhoods in Blaine were constructed, stormwater was not considered in the design of the neighborhood. Since that time, concerns over the quality and quantity of the water flowing off the streets, sidewalks, driveways, and rooftops have emerged. Treatment practices are now required to be installed when building a new neighborhood.

To construct this pond, some trees will be removed from the southwest corner of the park, but the project also includes planting replacement trees around the perimeter of the new pond and elsewhere in the park.

The City held a neighborhood open house for this project in late April. To learn more about this clean water initiative visit BlaineMN.gov/AureliaPondProject.
