Shady Oak Lake: Feasibility Study of Best Management Practices. (for City of Minnetonka)

Cyr, Braden, Kaylyn Ronke, Kyle Sandberg, Lauren Wimler.

Prepared 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.

This study was completed for the City of Minnetonka, to analyze the Shady Oak lakeshed for proactive measures to minimize pollutants within the lake. The storm water best management practices considered in the study include: in lake treatment, street sweeping, sumps, swales, bio-infiltration, and potential city ordinances. The goal of the study is to determine the most costeffective preventative measure for reducing phosphorus and total suspended solids. Based on the analysis, it was determined that increasing the frequency of street sweeping in the lakeshed would be the most effective best management practice.
