Water resources

Minnetonka’s water resources improve the quality of our lives year round with the sounds of frogs calling in the spring, dragonflies dancing over the water in the summer air, great views of the colorful trees along the shoreline in the fall, and a calm landscape of gentle snow in the winter. Water resources provide benefits such as recreational opportunities, fish and wildlife habitat, filtering and absorbing our runoff, and flood prevention. They also recharge our drinking water supply by slowing runoff and infiltrating it into the ground. Use the links below to gain a better understanding of these valued resources as well as to enhance the enjoyment and protection of your neighborhood lakes, creeks, and wetlands.
