The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. 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 Quality Improvement Plan for the Urban Ecology Center Subwatershed.

Paulos, P., A. Tomasek, J. Hunter, B. Sprang, and A. Miller.

CE 5511: Urban Hydrology, spring 2014 (Instructor John Gulliver, College of Science and Engineering)

Significant rain events in the last few years have overwhelmed the storm water systems in North St. Paul, creating localized flooding issues in several neighborhoods. In addition, most portions of the city drain to Kohlman Lake (at left), one of the four lakes that make up the Phalen Chain of Lakes. Kohlman Lake is impaired for phosphorus, which contributes to algae blooms, and storm water from North St. Paul contributes to this problem.

This spring, students in a civil engineering course investigated cost-effective solutions to remediate local flooding issues and reduce total suspended solids and phosphorus load to local and downstream lakes. This report is one of three from this course, CURA publication call numbers RCP-061, 062 and 063.
