Improving Lake Quality in Roseville
In 2012, Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) began work with the City of Roseville to identify projects to improve the health of Lake McCarrons, one of the highest-quality recreational lakes in the Twin Cities Metro Area. In 2016 CRWD was awarded a $1.76 million grant through the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources’ Targeted Watershed Program (TWP) funded by the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment for work in the Como and McCarrons sub-watersheds. One of the potential projects identified was a water quality improvement project at Parkview Center School located at the intersection of County Road B and Dale Street in Roseville. Partnering with the Roseville School District, Ramsey County, and the City of Roseville, CRWD plans to construct the project beginning in the fall of 2019.
