Join the League of Women Voters St. Paul (LWVSP) to learn more about an innovative approach being implemented for water management at Highland Bridge at "Holy Buckets: Novel Water Management at Highland Bridge." This program will be held online via Zoom on Tuesday, March 28, 7:00pm - 8:00pm.
After a decade of planning for the old Ford assembly plant, the City of St. Paul and many partners began development. Now in the site improvement stage, the community is getting a glimpse of how it looks and what features it will have, including an innovative use of water. The Highland Bridge development's scenic water feature rejuvenates what used to be Hidden Falls Creek and provides storm water management for the 122-acre development, which remains under construction. The central storm water system now flowing through the development is expected to reduce discharge from the site to nearby Hidden Falls by 98%.
Our presenting speaker will be Bob Fossum, Monitoring & Research Division Manager at Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) , who will discuss the sustainability aspect of the new water management. Fossum holds a B.S. in Geography and Environmental Studies at Gustavus Adolphus College and an M.S. in Water Resource Management and Geography at the University of Wisconsin. With CRWD since 2004, he manages the District’s Monitoring, Maintenance, and Research Division and district planning and capital improvement projects.
