In 2013, while Washington County was widening County Road 19, Water in Motion worked with the city of Woodbury and the South Washington Watershed District worked to redesign existing stormwater ponds at Eagle Valley and Prestwick Golf Courses so that the irrigation systems could reuse runoff water from the road to water the golf course greens instead of pumping groundwater from the aquifer below.
The project included installation of two large scale water re-use systems that capture urban runoff and excess nutrients that would otherwise flow into Colby and Bailey Lakes. The stormwater is stored in the two ponds; some of it slowly infiltrates into the soil and some is used for irrigation. This project was funded in 2013 with a Clean Water Fund grant.
