Starting November 2, Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) will begin a first-of-its-kind clean water protection project at Upper Villa Park in Roseville.
In conjunction with the City of Roseville, the water protection project is being launched to protect the lake by capturing pollution from storm water including phosphorus, heavy metals, and petroleum products.
The $851,000 watershed improvement project is funded in part with Minnesota Clean Water, Land and Legacy funds from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency ($275,000) and Board of Water and Soil Resources ($360,000). The remaining costs are being shared by the City of Roseville and CRWD.
The clean water project has been carefully timed to minimize scheduling conflicts at the Upper Villa softball field and the B-Dale Club, which has served the community since 1961 sponsoring family and youth activities. B-Dale Club will remain open during construction.
Additional information about the project is available at www.capitolregionwd.org or contact Cathy Kennedy at 612-309-3951 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
