Private Stormwater Maintenance

To align with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s stormwater regulations, the City of Lakeville requires installation of stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) within all areas of development. Maintenance of BMPs is necessary to ensure they are operating as designed. As such we are asking that you submit inspection records and maintenance schedules to meet these requirements.

Examples of BMPs include stormwater ponds, infiltration basins and underground treatment devices. Maintenance activities range in terms of the level of effort and expertise required to perform them. Routine maintenance, such as mowing and removing debris or trash, is needed multiple times each year. More significant maintenance, such as removing accumulated sediment, is needed less frequently, but requires more skilled labor and special equipment. Inspection and repair of critical structural features such as embankments and risers need to be performed by a qualified professional (e.g., structural engineer) that has experience in the construction, inspection and repair of these features.

Use this online application to submit annual inspection and maintenance schedules.
