Rice Creek Watershed Project

The Rice Creek Watershed District (RCWD) maintains waterways, drainage ditches and creeks throughout a number of counties, including Washington County. One of their upcoming projects includes significant drainage work to the Anoka Washington Judicial Ditch 3 (the creek that runs throughout Victor Gardens). 

This project will include removal of foliage on one side (and at times both sides) of the creek to allow machinery to dredge the creek bed. RCWD has posted a presentation outlining the project, and maps of the properties that will be impacted.

A public comments period is open until October 23rd. If you have any questions regarding this project, please reach out to the RCWD contacts on the final pages of the presentation linked above.
