Flood Mitigation Plans at SEA School-Wildwood Park in Golden Valley
The city of Golden Valley is doing some work on the Winnetka Avenue, Medicine Lake Road, and DeCola Ponds area that has had flooding issues over the years. This year’s project, taking place at the SEA School and Wildwood Park, will create temporary storage basins for water after a rainfall so it doesn’t end up in homes and businesses and damage infrastructure. While the main goal is flood mitigation, there will be other benefits like improving water quality in Basset Creek and a better park area to enjoy.
The project is in the design stage with construction expected to start in the fall and continue through the winter to minimize disruption to park users. Golden Valley is looking for your input.
