Local Surface Water Management Plan Overview

This Local Surface Water Management Plan will serve as a comprehensive planning document to guide the City of Farmington in conserving, protecting, and managing its surface water resources. This report builds upon previous Surface Water Management Plans and addendums completed by the city in 1985, 1997 and 2006. This plan may be periodically amended to remain current with local practices and policies.

This plan has been created to meet the requirements detailed in Minnesota Statutes 103B and Minnesota Rules 8410, administered by the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources. This plan is consistent with the goals and policies of the Metropolitan Council’s 2030 Water Resources Management Policy Plan.

This plan is also consistent with the Vermillion River Watershed Joint Powers Organization (VRWJPO) Watershed Plan, adopted by the watershed in November 2005. The VRWJPO plan provides a summary of water and natural resources within the district, and recognizes the impact of urban development on the hydrology of the Vermillion River and adjacent resources. The City of Farmington shares in the benefits and responsibilities of addressing those issues.
