Phosphorus is a major source of water pollution that causes excessive growth of algae and depletes oxygen needed for fish and native plants. Impervious surfaces, such as city streets and parking lots, provide a pathway for phosphorus to get to local lakes, rivers and streams. Phosphorus on streets comes from decaying organic matter such as leaves, branches and loose dirt. Fall is one of the peak periods for introduction of phosphorus from city streets into local waters.
Brooms, shovels, rakes, and wagons or wheelbarrows to haul any larger debris.
Lawn and leaf bags, trash bags, and gloves.
The following Chanhassen streets have been designated for clean up:
Carver Beach Road between Creek Drive and Broken Arrow Drive
Lake Riley Boulevard from Deerfoot Trail to end of road
Volunteers are requested to meet in the parking lot outside of the Senior Center at City Hall promptly at 9:30 am. Clean-up sites will be assigned and supplies will be distributed, as well as instructions.
Email Sharon McCotter or call her at 952-934-2440.
