Medley Park Stormwater Improvement Project

The Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission (BCWMC), in partnership with the City of Golden Valley, is studying options for providing stormwater improvements in the western portion of Medley Park to benefit the surrounding area and protect and improve downstream waters like Medicine Lake.


The study will include opportunities for community engagement and outreach to better understand existing conditions, issues, and needs, and to help develop concept plans for consideration by the BCWMC.

Project Purpose
