Thermal Mitigation:
thermal stability for stream and lake habitat/health

Brown’s Creek is impaired for biota and cold water assemblage (trout habitat). As identified in the Watershed District’s Stormwater Mgmt. Plan, Brown’s Creek Park (along the parking lot and Neal Avenue) was prioritized for the siting and development of a thermal BMP.

The identification and selection of this site was the result of coordinating with the City of Stillwater and Washington County in considering future road and parking area forecasts and how these projects could aid in addressing Brown’s Creek impairments. The thermal BMP, includes a bioswale and a rock crib combination that will serve to reduce the temperature of the parking area’s stormwater runoff before it enters the nearby Brown’s Creek.
