2017 Pond Maintenance Project – Glenbrook Ponding Area
The project proposes to remove accumulated sediment from the storm water basins, known locally as the Glenbrook Ponds. The ponds were originally constructed in 1993-94 by the City of Wayzata and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) and are located between Wayzata Blvd and Highway 12. Because of the warmer temperatures and the early onset of seasonal road restrictions, the contractor has not yet started this work. Staff is awaiting an updated schedule.
