Since the 1970s, Barr has performed stormwater development and redevelopment reviews on behalf of the BCWMC for proposed projects in the Bassett Creek watershed. These reviews help the commission meet its goals of managing the watershed’s surface water resources to meet or exceed state water quality standards, reduce stormwater runoff volume to improve water quality, and protect against flood risks along the Bassett Creek trunk system.
This work includes review of erosion and sediment control, rate control, and water-quality treatment; floodplain alterations; surface-water diversions; land-use changes and appropriations; utility crossings and bridges; and Minnesota Department of Natural Resources permit applications. Submittals are also reviewed to confirm that minimal impact design standards (MIDS) are incorporated into the development/redevelopment proposals and make sure any drainage modifications to the Bassett Creek tunnel are properly analyzed.
