DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

March 13, 2014 CRWD Board of Managers Mark Doneux Office Facility Update

Background CBRE has completed the Needs Assessment as well as a review of existing facilities. Issues Staff will review again the basic needs assessment and confirm key or priority needs versus wants. Recent office site visits have helped focus our needs based on currently available properties on the market. Jason Mundstock and Joe Hughes will review the findings of the Market Analysis including a financial analysis of three office facility options. Those options include build, buy and lease. Once this second working session is completed, CBRE will conduct the final Market Analysis and incorporate that analysis into the final Office Needs Survey and Assessment. The goal of the workshop is to pick up where we left off after the January 8th workshop and establish a clear direction regarding the build, buy or lease option and establish an overall budget for the project. Action Requested No action requested. Provide feedback on findings.

March 19, 2014 IV. Special Report – A) TBI Drainage Improvements at Cottage and Farrington Feasibility Study Report (Eleria)

DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

March 12, 2014 CRWD Board of Managers Anna Eleria, Water Resource Project Manager TBI Drainage Improvements at Cottage Ave. and Farrington St - Feasibility Study Report

Background In late 2011, CRWD staff was first made aware of a local flooding problem in the backyard of 300 Cottage Avenue West, which is adjacent to CRWD’s Trout Brook Storm Sewer Interceptor. This area receives runoff from its own property and neighboring properties to the east and from multi-family properties and BNSF right-of-way to the west. The existing flared inlet to TBI, which is upstream and west of the affected property, is undersized and improperly designed. The flared inlet frequently was blocked with organic debris and trash after a rainstorm and stormwater runoff bypassed the inlet and the associated berm and flowed into and ponded in the backyard of 300 Cottage Avenue. For a year and a half, CRWD staff conducted frequent minor maintenance work to improve drainage to the existing inlet. Issues In 2013, CRWD approached the localized flooding issue in two ways. First, CRWD hired a contractor in late summer 2013 to conduct more significant maintenance work that included clearing sediment, trash and debris from the area around the inlet, grading work in the ditch upstream of the inlet, and repairing and raising the berm. Based on follow-up inspections, the inlet has remained clear and open helping to ensure runoff from the west flows into TBI inlet. The work eliminated the need for CRWD staff to conduct any minor maintenance work last fall. Second, CRWD commenced a feasibility study to better understand the issue, evaluate its cause(s) and identify potential long-term solutions. The feasibility study, conducted by Barr Engineering, included field investigations, detailed modeling, and evaluation of flood mitigation alternatives including volumereduction/water quality improvement strategies. The draft feasibility report has been completed and is enclosed for the Board’s review and comment including a recommendation on the preferred alternative. Barr Engineering staff will present the draft feasibility report and CRWD staff will share comments received from the CAC who heard the presentation at their March meeting. Action Requested None required, for your review and comment including a recommendation on preferred alternative for drainage improvements at TBI Cottage Ave. and Farrington St. enc:

1.0 Background 1.1

Purpose

The purpose of this feasibility report is to provide a summary related to potential Trout Brook Storm Sewer Interceptor (TBI) drainage improvements in the vicinity of Cottage Ave. and Farrington St. in Saint Paul, MN. Specifically, this report provides updates to the CRWD’s existing TBI XP-SWMM model, and outlines potential localized flood mitigation alternatives and associated opinions of cost.

1.2

Background and Scope

The Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) is aware of a localized flooding concern at 300 Cottage Ave. W. The low-lying area on this property periodically experiences standing water following precipitation events, prompting complaints from the homeowner. It is our understanding that localized flooding does not impact any homes or other permanent structures. Upstream of the localized flooding, there is a 12-inch inlet to the TBI. Possible sources of localized flooding include (a) direct drainage to the property and (b) flow-bypassing the 12-inch inlet near the property. In 2012, a detailed XP-SWMM model of the entire TBI system was developed. Although the 12-inch inlet was included in the 2012 TBI model, watershed divides in the area were only developed to TBI inlet points. Therefore, due to the unique local drainage, further refinement of the existing TBI model in the vicinity of Cottage Ave. and Farrington St. was required to evaluate sources of localized flooding and potential solutions. To determine the probable sources of localized flooding at 300 Cottage Ave. W and determine potential improvements, the following tasks were performed: 1. Delineate and field verify subwatersheds to the location of localized flooding and nearby storm sewer inlets. 2. Update the CRWD’s existing XP-SWMM model to determine probable causes of localized flooding. 3. Evaluate flood mitigation alternatives using the updated XP-SWMM model. All existing conditions detailed modeling will be incorporated into the current version of the TBI XP SWMM model. This technical report summarizes findings related to the referenced tasks and will be added to the 2012 TBI XP-SWMM model report as an addendum.

Study Area

The study area includes all potential sources of direct drainage to the localized flooding area on 300 Cottage Ave. W. This area is generally bounded to the North, East, South, and West by Arlington Ave. W, Galtier St., the BNSF freight rail line, and W. Wheelock Pkwy., respectively. Figure 1 shows the extent of the study area, subwatershed divides, and the area of localized flooding.

2.0 Modeling 2.1

Delineation of Subwatersheds & Field Review

To better understand drainage patterns and potential sources of flooding in the vicinity of Cottage Ave. and Farrington St., subwatersheds from the 2012 TBI XP-SWMM model were further refined and subdivided. Typically, this involved redefining subwatersheds in the study area to represent individual stormsewer inlets, catch basin clusters, and potential sources of direct drainage to the localized flooding. The updated subwatershed divides were developed using a variety of data sources including: 

One-foot topography for the City of St. Paul.

High resolution (1 meter, resampled to 3.3 meter grid cell resolution) LiDAR data collected by the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) for the Republican National Convention (RNC) in June 2007 covering the entire study area, to supplement the data provided by the CRWD. It was also used to create a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) that was used to develop model input parameters.

As-built storm sewer plan sheets for the City of St. Paul. Figure 3 shows the existing stormsewer network, including Trout Brook Interceptor, in the study area.

After initially refining subwatershed divides based on the data sources listed above, a field review was conducted on June 25, 2013 to confirm drainage patterns and the location of storm sewer inlets. Figure 1 illustrates the final watershed divides used in XP-SWMM modeling efforts. Nineteen subwatersheds were defined within the study area, ranging in area from 0.3 to 6.8 acres.

2.2

Hydraulic and Hydrologic Modeling

CRWD’s 2012 XP-SWMM model was used for this analysis. Updated subwatershed divides in the study area were incorporated into the existing model. This involved generating hydrologic parameters for all new subwatersheds, and defining hydraulic parameters associated with storm sewer flow and overland runoff within the project area. The Technical Addendum, included as Appendix A of this report, details the hydrologic and hydraulic modeling assumptions used for this analysis.

2.3

Localized Flooding

Using the updated and refined XP-SWMM model, inundation mapping was performed for the 2-, 10-, and 100-year rainfall events (Figure 4). Inundation area and localized flood depths are summarized in Table 1. Modeling results suggest that the low-lying area near 300 Cottage Ave. W floods to a depth of approximately two feet and four feet for the 2-year and 100-year rainfall events, respectively. Based on 2007 LiDAR data, inundation depth would need to approach 10 feet to impact the apparent low home located at 1355 Galtier St (Figure 4). Table 1

The hydrologic and hydraulic analyses indicate that there are two primary sources of runoff contributing to localized flooding: (1) direct runoff from the subwatershed to the low -lying area and (2) flow bypassing a 12-inch inlet to the TBI located to the southwest of the low-lying property. The 4.9-acre drainage area, identified as FC_17 on Figure 1 (direct drainage area to localized flooding), produces the majority of flood volume, particularly for smaller events (Table 2) . Three acres of the high density residential area between Western Ave. N and Farrington St. (FC_11 on Figure 2) is not directly serviced by storm sewer. Stormwater runoff from this area is conveyed via a ditch to the 12inch inlet. High flows from the developed area periodically overwhelm the 12-inch inlet and overtop the berm contributing to localized flooding. Modeling indicates that the 2-year, 24-hour rainfall event generates runoff sufficient to overtop the berm. The field investigation performed on June 25, 2013 corroborates this modeling result, as obvious signs of erosion and minor-washout were observed along the ditch between the developed area and the inlet, and from the toe of the berm to the lowlying area.

Localized Flooding Mitigation Alternatives

Localized flood mitigation alternatives were developed and evaluated using the updated XP -SWMM model. Corrective measures were developed to improve stormwater conveyance and/or reduce stormwater volumes. Strategies investigated included: 

Increasing stormwater conveyance capacity by installing new TBI inlet.

Improving existing collector ditch and inlet locations.

Implementing volume-reduction strategies.

Ultimately, four potential mitigating measures were investigated. The following results section provide brief descriptions of each of the four flood mitigation options evaluated and provide preliminary opinions of construction costs for each alternative.

3.0 Results All alternatives presented are located within CRWD’s TBI easement over BNSF property. Careful review of the easement agreement with BNSF will be necessary to determine which alternatives, if any, are allowed by the terms of the existing agreement.

3.1

Alternative 1 – Replacement of Inlet Downstream of Farrington Ave.

Replace the existing 12-inch inlet identified on Figure 3 with a 3-foot diameter beehive inlet structure (Figure 5). The objective of this alternative is to increase stormwater conveyance capacity into the TBI such that the berm (Figure 3) would no longer overtop during the 100-year rainfall event. Modeling indicates that the proposed 3-foot diameter beehive structure has sufficient capacity to convey ditch-flow into the TBI without further modifications to the existing berm. For this alternative, runoff to the low-lying area is generally limited to its direct drainage area. Reductions in flood depth, flood volume, and inundation area associated with this alternative are shown in Table 8. Table 3

3.2

Alternative 2 – New Inlet Upstream of Farrington Ave.

Retain the existing 12-inch inlet structure and install a 3-foot beehive structure along the collector ditch which receives flow from the developed area between Western Ave. North and Farrington St. not serviced by storm sewer (Figure 5). Due to erosion and minor wash-out observed in this area, this alternative would require armoring and stabilization of the flow path from the developed area to the proposed beehive. The Alternative 2 beehive structure is positioned in a P:\Mpls\23 MN\62\2362944\WorkFiles\TBI Engineer\Farrington Erosion and HH Study\Workfiles\Report\FarringtonCottage_Report March 2014.docx

low point along this ditch which will provide pooling around the inlet to maximize conveyance into the TBI. To efficiently route flow from the developed area between Western Avenue North and Farrington Sttreet (Subwatershed FC_11) to the proposed inlet, it may be necessary to construct additional curb in the southeast corner of the parking lot discharging runoff from the developed area to the ditch. Modeling indicates that the proposed 3-foot beehive structure has sufficient capacity to convey runoff from the developed area into the TBI. Additionally, the 12-inch inlet has sufficient capacity to convey runoff generated down-gradient of the beehive inlet location into the TBI. As with Alternative 1, runoff to the low-lying area is generally limited to its direct drainage area. Reductions in flood depth, flood volume, and inundation area associated with this alternative are shown in Table 8. Table 4

3.3

Alternative 3 – Rain Garden Upstream of Farrington Ave.

Construct a rain garden in the collector ditch corridor to provide water quality treatment and reduce stormwater volume (Figure 5). The rain garden is sized to remain within the TBI easement and to maintain a distance of 25 feet from the centerline of BNSF’s railroad track. The existing TBI easement will need to be reviewed and may need to be amended to provide adequate area for access and repairs to the TBI if this alternative is to be implemented. This alternative assumes appropriate soils for infiltration; however the rain garden could also be constructed as a filtration garden with an underdrain discharging into TBI. County soils mapping suggests that this area is composed of hydrologic soil group B soils that would be appropriate for infiltration practices. Site visits confirm that this area is generally adequately drained; however, no soil borings have been taken.

The proposed rain garden has a footprint of over 3,000 ft 2 (0.07 ac) and volume of 2,224 cubic feet, which results in treatment 0.33- inches of runoff from the tributary impervious surfaces (1.85 ac). The proposed rain garden assumes a 12-inch dead storage depth below the outlet, 3:1 side slopes, and construction within the TBI storm sewer easement. Further expansion of the rain garden would require extensive clearing of trees along the BNSF railroad. Although a rain garden does provide volume reduction and attenuates peak flow from the developed area, the berm identified on Figure 5 will continue to overtop into the localized flooding area during the 10- and 100-year events. Reductions in flood depth, flood volume, and inundation area associated with this alternative are shown in Table 8. A water quality analysis was performed on the proposed rain garden using the MPCA’s Minimal Impact Design Standards (MIDS) calculator. The proposed infiltration rain garden would annually remove approximately 135,000 cubic feet of runoff volume, 466 pounds of total suspended solids (TSS), and 2.6 pounds of total phosphorus (1.4 pounds of particulate phosphorus and 1.2 pounds of dissolved phosphorus). Table 6 provides a cost-benefit analysis of the proposed rain garden, with the following assumptions: 

Design life of 35 years

Annual interest of 4%

Annual operations and maintenance (O&M) cost of $1.25 per cubic foot of treatment

Engineering costs for design and construction administration are estimated at 15% of the construction costs

Construct a rain garden and 3-foot riser structure in the collector ditch corridor to reduce stormwater volume, provide water quality treatment, and increase stormwater conveyance into the TBI (Figure 5). The rain garden used in this alternative is the same as described in Alternative 3, but includes a riser inlet one foot above the bottom of the rain garden. The current TBI easement with the railroad may need to be amended if this alternative is to be implemented (as noted in Alternative 3). The riser generally conveys flow not infiltrated by the rain garden into the TBI. Additionally, the 12inch inlet has sufficient capacity to convey runoff generated down-gradient of the rain garden into the TBI. As with Alternatives 1 and 2, runoff to the low-lying area prone to localized flooding is generally limited to its direct drainage area. Reductions in flood depth, flood volume, and inundation area associated with this alternative are shown in Table 8. Table 8 also shows the percent contributing for the direct drainage from the FC_17 watershed and runoff that bypasses the TBI inlet, if any.

4.0 Conclusion As noted, runoff from the 4.9-acre direct-drainage area (FC_17 on Figure 1) contributes to the majority of localized flooding at the low-lying area. Table 8 shows that, although three of the four options intercept flow along the collector ditch, localized flooding is not eliminated due to the direct drainage from the houses and backyard areas in Subwatershed FC_17. In the modeled events, this localized flooding does not appear to impact existing structures. Alternatives 1, 2, and 4 produce the largest reductions in localized flood depth and inundation area for the 10- and 100-year rainfall events. Additionally, Alternatives 2 and 4 provide the additional benefit of significantly reducing flow and associated channel degradation in the collector ditch between the developed area and the existing 12-inch inlet. Alternatives 3 and 4 have the additional benefit of providing limited water quality treatment to 1.85 acres of impervious surface.

Appendix A Technical Addendum


Technical Addendum Hydrologic Modeling The 2012 XP-SWMM model was calibrated based on observed flow data from the three CRWD flow monitoring stations and five CRWD pond monitoring stations. Many hydrologic parameters, including Hortonian infiltration parameters and impervious depression storage, were adjusted during the calibration process. Table 1 shows the hydrologic parameters which, after calibration, were locally constant within the vicinity of Cottage Ave. and Farrington St. Hydrologic parameter values shown in Table 1 were applied to all new subwatersheds in the study area, consistent with their use in the calibration process. Table 1. 2012 XP-SWMM TBI Calibration Parameters.

To ensure consistency throughout the entirety of the model, all hydrologic parameters not listed in Table 1 were generated based on the methodologies and assumptions described in Section 3.2 of the 2012 TBI XP-SWMM report. This involved evaluating areal distributions of hydrologic soil group, impervious area, slope, and land use type, and determining the longest flow path length for each new subwatershed. Figure 2 shows land use delineation within the project area. Associated hydrologic parameters, such as maximum infiltration rate, directly connected impervious area, and watershed width were then calculated based on the methodology described in 2012 TBI XP-SWMM report. Assumed parameter values used in the 2012 TBI XP-SWMM model for pervious and impervious roughness and pervious depression storage were applied to the new subwatersheds. The 24-hour rainfall distribution and design event precipitation depths used in 2012 TBI XP-SWMM modeling efforts were unchanged for this analysis.

Hydraulic Modeling Hydrographs generated from hydrologic modeling of subwatersheds within the project area were routed to stormsewer inlets or to the location of flooding via overland conveyances. Where inlet control and stormsewer surcharging were possible, storages, overflow conduits, and hydraulic control structures were included to accurately account for all potential sources of overland flow to the location of flooding.

Stormsewer and Stormsewer Inlets The calibrated 2012 TBI XP-SWMM model did not explicitly model the small stormsewer network draining the majority of the study area. For this reason, hydraulic parameters associated with all pipes in the study area were generated and incorporated into the greater TBI stormsewer network. Figure 3 shows stormsewer within the project area included in the original 2012 TBI model, and stormsewer pipe segments added as part of this analysis. To ensure consistency throughout the model, hydraulic parameters were generated based on methodology and data sources outlined in Section 3.3 of the 2012 TBI model report. Pipe diameter, shape, invert elevations, and slope were taken from City of St. Paul stormsewer CAD file data. Because rim elevations were not specified within the City of St. Paul stormsewer CAD data file for the majority of added stormsewer network, rim elevations were instead assumed from DEM data. A typical reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) manning’s roughness value of 0.013 was assumed, and entrance and exit losses assigned to each individual pipe segment were referenced from the Wurbs and James 2002 Water Resources Engineering textbook. Two flared end section stormsewer inlets, including the 12-inch inlet to the TBI near the location of flooding, were assigned appropriate inlet types in XP-SWMM. Both were modeled as having grooved ends, projecting from the surrounding surface. An earthen and rock dam surrounding the 12-inch inlet to the TBI was included in the model as a weir structure, representing the improved berm that was initiated by CRWD and constructed in Summer 2013 by G. F. Jedlicki, Inc. Berm dimensions were developed from observations made during the June 25, 2013, site visit. Storage in the ditch behind the berm, and at all locations where inlet barrel capacity or hydraulic structures could conceivably restrict flow, was determined using high-resolution LiDAR data and was incorporated into the model. Open-Channel Properties Open-channels were modeled within the project area to convey overland flow to TBI stormsewer inlets and storage areas, including the location of flooding. The main collector ditch along the southern boundary of the project area, parallel to and north of the BNSF freight rail line, was modeled as a series of natural cross-sections and trapezoidal channels. Where the ditch profile could clearly be discerned from elevation data, the ditch was modeled as a natural section. Natural cross-sections, developed from highresolution lidar data, were defined at the most constricting points along the ditch profile. All reaches modeled as natural sections were extremely vegetated. For this reason, Manning’s roughness values of 0.12 and 0.14 were chosen for the center of channel and channel overbanks, respectively. These values 2

P:\Mpls\23 MN\62\2362944\WorkFiles\TBI Engineer\Farrington Erosion and HH Study\Workfiles\Report\FarringtonCottage_Report_TechnicalAddendum.docx


are typical for very weedy reaches, as defined by the Bedient, Huber and Vieux 2008 Hydrology and Floodplain Analysis textbook. Where natural sections could not be defined, the collector ditch was modeled as a trapezoidal channel two feet wide, 1.5 feet deep, with 2H:1V side slopes. Where the ditch was densely vegetated, a Manning’s roughness value of 0.12 was assumed. Where the ditch was more typical of a low-stage channel with some rocks and weeds, a value of 0.045 was used (Bedient et al., 2008). Overland flow from catch basin surcharging was modeled using wide, shallow trapezoidal channels. Where catch basins surcharged onto paved road surfaces, the channel-bottom width was set equal to the road width, and a manning’s roughness of 0.014, typical for overland flow over asphalt, was assumed (Crawford and Linsley, 1966). Where catch basins surcharged onto grass or turf surfaces, Manning’s overland flow roughness of 0.2, typical of light turf surfaces, was used (Crawford and Linsley, 1966), and channel-bottom width was set to 10 feet.

March 19, 2014 IV. Special Reports B) Stewardship Grant Program Improvements (Zwonitzer) DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

March 13th, 2014 CRWD Board of Managers Nate Zwonitzer, Urban BMP Specialist Stewardship Grant Program Improvements

Background The CRWD Stewardship Grant program offers financial assistance to property owners interested in implementing stormwater BMPs on their property. Typical projects that receive funding include rain gardens, rain barrels, permeable hardscapes, and swales. Most grant awards are under $10,000 and will typically cover 100% of material costs or 50% of total project costs (materials and labor), whichever is less. In addition to funding, the program provides on-site technical assistance and construction-ready designs. Over the past year CRWD staff have been reviewing the Stewardship Grant program to identify ways it can be improved. Issues Several areas of the Stewardship Grant Program were identified for improvement including outreach/education, design efficiency, and grant project funding. After many internal meetings and working with the Ramsey Conservation District (RCD), we have identified several goals for the program as well as ways to achieve those goals. Goal 1: Provide an exceptional level of education/outreach Action: A site visit will be provided to all property owners requesting one. Site visits will consist of a representative from RCD and CRWD analyzing the property for runoff issues and identifying BMP opportunities. Site visits provide a great opportunity for face-to-face education on water resource issues. Every property owner will receive a folder containing additional information on CRWD and its activities, grant program information, upcoming events, Citizen Advisory Committee and more details on projects identified for their property. Goal 2: Improve design efficiency Action: When requested, a concept-level “Clean Water Plan” will be developed for every property. Clean Water Plans will be much quicker to produce than full design sets, and they will show all identified BMP opportunities. Plans will also include basic project information such as total cost, water quality treatment ranking, and whether additional design services are available. This will allow a property owner to select which project(s) will be fully designed, and it will greatly reduce the amount of time and money spent on designs that don’t lead to project construction. Goal 3: Develop more equitable grant award system based on project benefit Action: CRWD has developed a calculator to help determine grant awards for projects. Instead of focusing on the project cost, the calculator factors in size and area type treated (roof, street, lawn etc.), rainfall depth treated, and provides a bonus based on promotional/educational value of the project. A high performing, highly visible project may be eligible for 100% funding, thereby increasing the

Requested Action: 1. Approve updated Stewardship Grant Program process as follows: a. All property owners will receive a site visit, educational materials and a clean water plan, b. Adopt grant award calculation rates as outlined in tables 1 and 2 of the staff memo, and prorate grant awards based on the percentage of the 1” rainfall treated, c. Establish $300 as the minimum grant award a project must be eligible for to receive detailed designs and grant funds, d. Allow staff to adjust grant award calculation by an additional 20% to accommodate special circumstances.

WHAT IS A WATERSHED?

MISSION ST.

CAPITOL REGION WATERSHED DISTRICT

A watershed is the area of land where water from rain or snowmelt runs off and drains to a water body such as a river, lake or pond. Watershed boundaries are defined by hills, mountains or other higher ground. Because all water eventually flows to a particular water body, all land is TH ST.hed is a located in a distinct watershed. A good analogy of a 30 waters bathtub. The “sides” of the tub define the boundary of the watershed while the “bottom” is the land area” that slopes slightly towards the “drain” or water body.

URBAN WATERSHEDS Stormwater runoff is a major cause of water pollution. In an undeveloped environment, pervious ground surfaces filter and absorb stormwater from rain events as the runoff flows into nearby waters. In an urban setting with large amounts of impervious surfaces, much more of the rainwater is directly routed into engineered stormwater collection systems. In many older cities, the water collection systems combine stormwater with wastewater in combined sewer overflows (CSOs) before carrying it to wastewater management systems for treatment. Heavy-volume rain or snow events can overburden the collection and treatment systems, resulting in overflows of untreated wastewater (including chemical and microbial pollutants) into nearby receiving waters. This can result in unsafe recreational and drinking water, as well as potential harm to vegetation, fish, and other aquatic life.

WHAT IS A WATERSHED DISTRICT? A watershed district is a special purpose unit of local government in charge of managing water resources within designated boundaries. Watershed districts work to protect and improve water quality in lakes, rivers, wetlands, and streams within their jurisdiction, and to protect TH ST. residents and property against flooding. Minnesota was30 one of the first states to establish watershed districts as legal entities through the Minnesota Watershed Act of 1955. Minnesota has 46 watershed districts, including 13 in the metro area, working to protect our lakes, streams, wetlands and natural habitat. For more information about other MN watershed districts, visit the MN Association of Watershed Districts website www.mnwatershed.org.

MISSION ST.

CAPITOL REGION WATERSHED DISTRICT

Como Lake

CAPITOL REGION WATERSHED DISTRICT Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) originated from a small group of dedicated citizens who wanted to protect Como Lake. They petitioned the Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) to create a watershed district, and in 1998 CRWD was formed. CRWD is a special purpose local unit of government created to manage and protect part of the Mississippi River Basin, along with the District’s wetlands, creeks and lakes that drain to the river. CRWD covers 40 square miles and includes portions of the cities of Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Maplewood, Roseville and Saint Paul. Located within Ramsey County, CRWD has a population of 225,000 people. The Capitol Region Watershed District is comprised of numerous important water resources that all eventually discharge to the Mississippi River, its primary water resource. All CRWD lakes serve important recreational needs for District residents and visitors including fishing, boating and swimming. Water quality in CRWD lakes is monitored by Ramsey County, and groundwater underneath the land surface of the District provides nondrinking water for businesses and institutions. Few natural wetlands in the District remain because of their removal and alteration from urbanization and development over the past century.

8)"510--65"/54"3&&/5&3*/(0638"5&3 Stormwater runoff occurs when precipitation from rain or snowmelt flows over the ground. Impervious surfaces like driveways, sidewalks, and streets prevent stormwater runoff from naturally soaking into the ground. Stormwater can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants and flow into a storm sewer system or directly to a lake, stream, river, or wetland. Anything that enters a storm sewer system is discharged untreated into the waterbodies we use for 30TH ST. swimming, fishing and providing drinking water.

WHAT IS A RAIN GARDEN? A rain garden is a planted depression or a hole that allows rainwater runoff from impervious urban areas, like roofs, driveways, walkways, parking lots, and compacted lawn areas, the opportunity to be absorbed. The purpose of a rain garden is to improve water quality in near by bodies of . water. Rain gardens can cut down on the amount 30TH ST of pollution reaching creeks and streams by up to 30%. Rain gardens can be planted with shrubs, perennials or native wildflowers and grasses to increase infiltration and attract a variety of birds. Native plants are recommended for rain gardens because they generally do not require fertilizer and are more tolerant of one’s local climate, soil, and water conditions, and attract local wildlife such as native birds.

STEP BY STEP RAIN GARDEN HOW-TO'S 1. Call 651-454-0002 to locate burried utilities. 2. Determine how water runs across your property. 3. Choose the best location for the rain garden (at least 10' from the basement and 4' from other surfaces) 4. If you have a wet spot in your yeard at the bottom of a slope, place the garden upslope. 5. Layout the garden with a rope or garden hose. 6. Dig a hole where the garden will be 7. Remove sod and soil 3" deeper than the depth of the raingarden. 8. Mix 3" of leaf compost into the soil 9. Create an inlet and outlet and protect them from erosion with rocks or mulch. 10. Add 3" of double shredded hardwood mulch. 11. Plant! 12. Water as needed for the remainder of the season. After year one there is no need tp water. 13. Weed the raingarden and enjoy the blooming of plants. For more details visit the Blue Thumb website www. bluethumb.org

RAIN GARDEN MAINTENANCE

. S VAN NESS ST

23RD ST.

The following maintenance activities are required to ensure that rain gardens function as expected:

WATERING

24TH ST.

 Water weekly with 1” of water if it has not rained WEEDING

 Leave the plant tags in the garden to help identify good plants from weeds (recommended)

25TH ST.

 Maintain a 3” mulch cover to reduce the need for watering and minimize weed growth

MISSION ST.

 Do not use landscape fabric underneath the mulch – this will prevent the rain garden from working properly

 If you are unable to identify weeds, use a field guide or contact Capitol Region Watershed District, 651-644-8888 26TH ST.

PRUNING AND REPLANTING

 Stalks can be left over winter to attract birds or you can prune in the fall when the plants have gone dormant  Pruning can also be done in spring after the plants have begun to green up . STthe plants  Planting can be done at any time but Spring and Fall are best 30THfor

 Dividing plants that have become too large can be done in the Fall MULCHING

 Add mulch in spring each year or two to keep a 3” layer. This helps reduce the amount of weeding and watering needed ADDITIONAL TASKS

 Regularly clear the inlet of accumulated leaves, sediment and trash  Except for time spent doing regular maintenance, avoid walking in the basin of the garden to prevent soil compaction FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Does a Rain Garden Form a pond? No. The rain water will soak in so the rain garden is dry between rainfalls. Are they a breeding ground for mosquitoes? No. Mosquitoes need 7-12 days to lay an hatch eggs. Standing water in the rain garden wil last for a few hours. Do they require a lot of maintenance? Rain gardens can be maintained with little effort after the plants are stablished. Weeding and watering after. Is a raingarden expensive? No. CRWD provides public and private landowners with technical and financial assistance.

MISSION ST.

CAPITOL REGION WATERSHED DISTRICT

WHAT TYPES OF PROJECTS ARE INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM? The Stewardship grant program provides public and private landowners with technical and financial assistance to install water quality improvement projects known as “best management practices” (BMPs). Specifically, the program funds BMPs that reduce stormwater runoff, 30TH ST. correct erosion and filter pollutants.

Rain Gardens

WHO IS ELIGIBLE? Property owners within the Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) are eligible for grant funding. To find out if you are within the CRWD boundaries, contact the CRWD office or visit www.capitolregionwd.org.

WHY ARE THESE PROJECTS SUPPORTED WITH TAX DOLARS? Stormwater runoff is the number one cause of water pollution. Reducing stormwater runoff by encouraging infiltration is key to keeping our lakes and rivers clean. With the vast majority of land in private ownership, partnerships with private landowners to install these practices are vitally important to improving the quality of our lakes, streams and wetlands.

HOW DO I GET STARTED? Step 1: Contact Gustavo Castro gustavo@capitolregionwd.org to schedule a free site visit to identify project opportunities on your property. Step 2: Work with the CRWD to complete your project plan and grant application. Applications are accepted year-round. Step 3: Approval by the CRWD Step 4: Implement the project.

Streets are dirty so that water picks up a lot trash and chemicals along the way. You can do your part to keep trash and chemicals out of your neighborhood streams by directing your downspout into your yard or garden. The downspout and gutters remain in place.

A rain garden is a planted depression or a hole that allows rainwater runoff from impervious urban areas, like roofs, driveways, walkways, parking lots, and compacted lawn areas, the opportunity to be absorbed. Rain gardens can. be 26TH ST planted with shrubs, perennials or native wildflowers and grasses to increase infiltration and attract a variety of birds and butterflies.

NATIVE PLANTING Native plants are adapted to the local climate and soil conditions where they ST. well for many landscaping and wildlife habitat naturally occur. Native plants work 30TH plantings, because once established, they seldom need watering, mulching, protection from frost or continuous mowing. Native plants provide nectar, pollen, and seeds that serve as food for native butterflies, birds and other animals.

RAINWATER REUSE SYSTEMS Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and deposition of rainwater for reuse before it reaches the aquifer. This water can be reused for non-potable water use, such as irrigating potted plants, gardens and landscapes. Rain berrels can be used individually or linked together to capture large amounts of rainwater. A 55-gallon barrel is most common in residential areas but many configurations are possible.

PERMEABLE SURFACES Permeable surfaces is a range of sustainable materials and techniques for permeable pavements that allow the movement of stormwater through the surface. In addition to reducing runoff, it filters pollutants from the water. Permeable surfaces can be used in parking lots, roads, driveways and sidewalks where no chemical or other hazardous materials are used

GREEN ROOFS A green roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane. It may also include additional layers such as a root barrier, drainage and irrigation systems. Roof gardens can be either extensive (soil depth 3" - 4") or intensive (soil depth 6" or greater). Intensive roofs allow for a grater variety of plant types.

STEWARDSHIP GRANT POLICIES

Capitol Region Watershed District 1410 Energy Park Drive, Suite 4 Saint Paul, MN 55108 Capitolregionwd.org (651) 644-8888

1.

Overview

Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) covers areas of Saint Paul, Roseville, Falcon Heights, Lauderdale and Maplewood. The area is highly developed -- about 42% impervious surfaces like streets and parking lots – so CRWD offers financial assistance to encourage private and public landowners to install clean water projects that protect and improve the Mississippi River as well as lakes and streams within the district. This program promotes water quality improvement by focusing on the reduction of phosphorus, sediment and the overall volume of stormwater runoff leading to lakes and rivers.

2.

Grant Eligibility

CRWD partners with Ramsey Conservation District (RCD) to provide technical assistance to landowners interested in implementing water quality improvement projects on their property. To determine if you are eligible, contact CRWD at (651) 644-8888. CRWD may provide a free site visit and develop a Clean Water Plan that identifies water quality improvement projects for your property. Project information is available to help you complete projects, and reimbursement funding may be available.

3.

Grant Award Calculation

The Stewardship Grant Program focuses on projects that reduce the amount of phosphorus and sediment in stormwater runoff as well as reducing the overall volume of runoff. Projects will be reviewed by RCD or CRWD staff to determine grant eligibility and reimbursement amount. Most awards are based on an approved cost estimate prepared by RCD, or a bid amount prepared by a qualified contractor. Grant reimbursement rates are calculated using a performance-based model. The more runoff treated by the project, the more funding it will receive. A maximum award amount is also included based on the typical cost for similar projects. CRWD reserves the right to modify these rates on a case-by-case basis.

4.

Application

Applications for Stewardship Grants must be coordinated with the CRWD. Contact Gustavo Castro to begin the application process: Gustavo Castro Water Resource Specialist Capitol Region Watershed District gustavo@capitolregionwd.org (651) 644-8888 A complete application package must be submitted for review to ensure the project is consistent with CRWD water quality goals and objectives. You can work with a contractor of your choosing to develop the required materials. Or, you can schedule a free site visit with CRWD staff. CRWD may provide the Page 1 of 3

FI: TBI Drainage Improvements at Cottage Ave. and Farrington St./Cottage Update (Eleria)

Ms. Eleria reviewed that in late 2011, CRWD staff was first made aware of a local flooding problem in the backyard of 300 Cottage Avenue West, which is adjacent to CRWD’s Trout Brook Storm Sewer Interceptor. This area receives runoff from property and neighboring properties to the east and from multi-family properties and BNSF right-of-way to the west. The existing flared inlet to TBI, which is upstream and west of the affected property, is undersized and improperly designed. The flared inlet frequently clogged up with organic debris and trash after a rainstorm. In 2013, CRWD commenced a feasibility study to better understand the issue, evaluate its cause(s) and identify potential long-term solutions. The feasibility study, conducted by Barr Engineering, Our Mission is to protect, manage and improve the water resources of Capitol Region Watershed District


included field investigations, detailed modeling, and evaluation of flood mitigation alternatives including volume-reduction/water quality improvement strategies. The draft feasibility report has been completed and will be reviewed by the CAC for comment. VII. A)

March 19, 2014 Board Meeting V. Action Item – D) Easements and Access Agreement for Highland Ravine Stabilization Project – (Eleria)

March 13, 2014 CRWD Board of Managers Anna Eleria, Water Resource Project Manager Approve Easements and Access Agreement for Highland Ravine Stabilization Project

Background The Highland Ravine Stabilization Project involves work on both private property and public parkland with construction limits ranging from 10 to 20 feet wide along the centerlines of three ravines (Ravines 1, 2 and 3) and slightly wider for a stormwater basin at the junction of Ravines 1 and 2. Specifically, the construction area for Ravines 1 and 2 is located on five single-family residential properties and the access route is via Deer Park Townhome Association. For Ravine 3, the project will take place on City parkland and one private residence. CRWD is seeking voluntary easements or agreements from the affected property owners that include rights to enter upon property and construction and maintenance of ravine stabilization practices in perpetuity. Issues In mid-January, CRWD staff provided easements to the single-family homeowners in all three ravines for their review and signature. In addition, an access agreement was provided to Deer Park Townhome Association in early February. The City of Saint Paul is currently preparing a license agreement for access and construction on City parkland. It is anticipated that the license agreement will be presented to the Board in April. CRWD has received signed easements from the single-family homeowners in all three ravines. At the time of preparation of this memo, Deer Park Townhome Association was reviewing CRWD’s revisions to the agreement. CRWD staff anticipates that we will come to terms on the agreement with Deer Park by the Board meeting. CRWD staff seeks the Board’s approval of the easements and the agreement if approved by Deer Park. One of the signed easements and the draft Deer Park agreement are enclosed for the Board’s review. Action Requested Approve the easements for the Highland Ravine Stabilization Project; and approve the agreement with Deer Park Townhome Association subject to approval of the Ramsey County Attorney.

March 19, 2014 Board Meeting V. Action Item – E) Bidding for the Highland Ravine Stabilization Project – (Eleria)

DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

March 13, 2014 CRWD Board of Managers Anna Eleria, Water Resource Project Manager Authorize Solicitation of Bids for the Highland Ravine Stabilization Project

Background In November 2012, CRWD hired Wenck Associates to conduct the design and engineering work for the Highland Ravine Stabilization Project. The purpose of the project is to slow down runoff in the ravines, minimize ravine erosion, and prevent flooding and sedimentation to downstream properties. The project area is situated on both private property and City parkland between Lexington Parkway and Edgcumbe Road in Saint Paul. Issues Over the past year and a half, CRWD has involved the affected property owners in the design of the ravine stabilization project providing several opportunities to review iterations of the plans and holding over dozen meetings and site visits. In addition, several pertinent City departments have reviewed and commented on the project through the City’s site plan review process. Enclosed are the final plans for Highland Ravines 1, 2 and 3. Wenck has also prepared the Highland Ravine Stabilization Project Manual or Contract Documents. The front end legal documents have been reviewed on two occasions by Ramsey County Attorney and CRWD staff. It is anticipated that the complete project manual including technical specifications will be finalized in the next week. An electronic copy of the project manual is available upon request. CRWD staff estimates that the total cost of the Highland Ravine Stabilization Project will be $400,000. The table below is a breakdown of the project costs and the sources of funding. Project Engineering – Design Construction (Ravines 1, 2 and 3) Engineering – Construction Administration and Observation TOTAL COSTS Funding Sources CWF Grant CRWD

Cost $61,000 $300,000 $40,000 Est. $401,000 Cost $150,000 $251,000

CRWD staff will review the final plans, key contract specifications, and the project costs including the engineer’s estimate for construction. CRWD staff will seek the Board’s authorization to solicit bids for the Highland Ravine Stabilization Project.

Our Mission is to protect, manage and improve the water resources of Capitol Region Watershed District.


Action Requested Authorize solicitation of bids for the Highland Ravine Stabilization Project subject to obtaining all required easements and agreements from property owners, and the review and approval of the Ramsey County Attorney.

DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

March 13, 2014 CRWD Board of Managers Bob Fossum, Water Resource Project Manager Approve Contract Amendment with Houston Engineering for the Curtis Pond Improvement Project

Background At the June 5, 2013 Board meeting the Managers approved for Final Design Engineering for Curtiss Pond Improvement Project and authorize Board President and Administrator to execute a professional services agreement with Houston Engineering, Inc. for an amount not to exceed $51,000. This approval only authorized work included in Tasks 1 and 2 of the enclosed proposal from Houston Engineering Inc. Issues As we move closer to a spring 2014 bidding of the project, the District will need to authorize Task 3—Bidding and Construction Management in the amount of $45,184. (see enclosed proposal). Additionally, staff have directed Houston Engineering to complete additional design work under Task 2 that is outside the scope of the original proposal. That work includes: 1.) Removal of the 3 swirl-separator pretreatment manholes and adding 130’ of additional underground storage pipe; and 2.) Including OptiRTC technology within the inlet manhole structure and coordination with Geosyntec Consultants to complete this design work. This additional work under Task 2 will cost $4,400. Requested Action Approve Contract Amendment #1 with Houston Engineering for the Curtis Pond Improvement Project for Final Design Engineering and authorize Administrator to execute the Amendment in an amount of $49,584, for a total contract amount not to exceed $100,584. enc:

Administrator Approved or Executed Agreements Amendment Number 2 to Engineering Services with Barr Engineering on Green Line Green Infrastructure Practices to increase costs for 2014 from $5,000 to $7,000. Board Approved or Executed Agreements

General updates including recent and upcoming meetings and events The Trout Brook Realignment Big Dig story was published in the American Public Works Association, Minnesota Chapter online newsletter on February 24, 2014 and be accessed on our homepage or here. Harambee Elementary was awarded a 2014 CRWD Partner Grant to support a water quality curriculum for fourth and fifth graders. The students recently conducted an exercise on water quality and determined it is much easier to prevent water pollution than to clean up polluted water. The project was featured in the school newsletter. Copies of the newsletter will be available at the meeting. Staff continues to support Central High School efforts to raise student and community support for stormwater site improvements. Staff will support an Earth Day event on Tuesday, April 22 with a tour of Green Line BMPs and a Transforming Central printmaking project in conjunction with CRWD’s artist in residence Christine Baeumler. Brooke Asleson of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency presented the Twin Cities Metro Area Chloride Management Plan to the Watershed Partners meeting on March 12, 2014 attended by Lindsay VanPatten. The goal of the plan is to develop a strategy for chloride TMDLs and to provide a Winter Maintenance Assessment Tool Kit including BMP suggestions to assist local partners in managing chloride. The largest challenge for addressing chloride issues is addressing the public’s expectation and perception of safety. Bob Fossum is a member of the Monitoring Sub-Committee of the TCMA Chloride Project Stakeholder group. 1.) Upcoming events and meetings a) Next Board Meeting is Wednesday April 2, 2014 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. b) Women’s Environmental Network, annual networking event is Wednesday April 2, 2014 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Hamline University. c) Next CAC Meeting is Wednesday April 9, 2014 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. d) The 20th Annual Great River Gathering presented by the Saint Paul River Front Corporation is Thursday May 8, 2014 from 5:00 – 8:30 pm at Union Depot. e) Saint Paul Public Works Annul Open House is Tuesday May 20, 2014 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at the Dale Street Garage.
