The Minnesota State Fair retained TKDA to develop an overall Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) for the Fairgrounds. The SWMP provided a framework for planning and implementing Best Management Practices to improve the quality and reduce the quantity of runoff being discharged from the fairgrounds.
TKDA designed the plan to meet the functional goals of the Fair while also satisfying the policies and goals of the relevant regulatory agencies. The SWMP included an extensive section for a conceptual stormwater treatment system for the entire fairgrounds including an implementation schedule for future infrastructure improvements. The SWMP also detailed opportunities for public involvement in stormwater management.
