Projects: Neighborhood Flooding Issues-Infrastructure ImprovementsIn 2020, the City consulted with Bolton & Menk, Inc. to update its Surface Water Model as well as review known localized flooding issues throughout the community. These localized flooding issues are isolated events not associated with the Cannon River Flooding which our community is very familiar with. Most of these areas are smaller regional locations which experience flooding and a threat to structure(s) occurs due to undersized/lacking infrastructure or emergency overflows (EOFs). City Staff have had several discussions with the Northfield City Council since the adoption of the 2020 Surface Water Management Plan regarding how the City participates in localized or regional flooding when it threatens private structures. This project reflects the direction given by City Council during those discussions. City staff have consulted with Bolton and Menk to design the proposed improvements which included construction of new storm sewer as well as installation of a backflow preventer.
