Chanhassen has an abundance of surface water resources which include lakes, streams, ponds, and wetlands. The city’s Surface Water Management Plan outlines goals for managing these resources.
Water quality, lakeshore preservation, lake level variability, and flood management are some of the important issues that impact the quality of life enjoyed by all residents.
We all have a role to play in the management of these resources for the benefit of wildlife ecosystems that rely on it. Whether through direct use of Chanhassen’s many lakes, streams, ponds, and wetlands or through runoff from yards, driveways, and streets, pollutants find their way into the water and degrade these valuable resources.
