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.
Primary benefits include:
improving the water quality of Medicine Lake and nearby surface waters
reducing flood damage to homes and infrastructure
protecting public health and safety
preserving economic value
Additional benefits include:
improving ecological diversity and wildlife habitat, including pollinators
enhancing active and passive recreation opportunities
providing educational opportunities to park users
