Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Stormwater Management Prioritization for the Watershed of Lake Windsor – Minnetonka, MN.

Author: 
Vogel, Eric, Ali Ebrahimian, Zach Sudman, Ben Gaard.

Produced by students in CE 5511: Urban Hydrology and Land Development (Instructor John Gulliver, Civil Engineering) as part of the 2012-2013 Resilient Communities Project partnership with the City of Minnetonka.

The purpose of this report is to prioritize and investigate the most effective and cost sensitive method s of decreasing the quantity, and increasing the quality, of stormwater runoff to Windsor Lake in Minnetonka, MN. Specifically, the reduction of total suspended solids, phosphorus, and peak discharge values to the lake will be taken into consideration.

In order to achieve this prioritization, research into stormwater treatment and management methods was undertaken. Computer models were also built to simulate the effectiveness of these methods on the actual watershed.
