Medicine Lake Rd & DeCola Ponds Flood Mitigation Plan

The Cities of Golden Valley, Crystal, and New Hope are taking actions to minimize flood-related property damage around the DeCola Ponds and along Medicine Lake Rd near Rhode Island Ave, as well as in a portion of New Hope. The area receives stormwater runoff from approximately a one-square-mile watershed (JPG) that includes portions of Crystal, New Hope, and Golden Valley.

Flood reduction efforts in the area will:

  • minimize flooding to the extent possible
  • keep Medicine Lake Rd passable for emergency vehicles
  • reduce and minimize flood damage to homes and businesses
