Watersheds

The City of Bloomington crosses the boundaries of four watersheds: Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek, Nine Mile Creek, Lower Minnesota River, and Richfield Bloomington. Each of these are managed by an independent agency, either a watershed district or watershed management organization. Be aware that if you are looking to do a construction project, you may need a permit from the appropriate watershed district. See below for links to their websites.
