Floodplain Regulations Affecting Shorewood
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) oversees the Federal Floodplain Regulations across the nation. They have recently updated the flood insurance rate maps (FIRMS) for Shorewood as well as completed the Hennepin County Flood Insurance Study. Both of these will become effective on November 4, 2016. As a result, the City of Shorewood is required to update our floodplain regulations consistent with the federal regulations in order to continue participation in the flood insurance program.
We will be finalizing language for the local ordinance and anticipate the following schedule:
October 24, 2016 City Council meeting for adoption prior to November 4, 2016

Installation of watermain for the following roadways:
- Portion of Yellowstone Trail
- Park Street
- Glencoe Road
- Portion of Chaska Road
The current plan is to perform the installation of watermain for the portions north of TH 7. The contractor may opt to continue boring pipe under TH 7 during the winter depending upon weather conditions. Chaska Road work to will continue in the spring, 2017. A base of asphalt will be replaced before winter.
Construction has started on Yellowstone Trail. There will be times during the day that portions of a roadway will be impassable, due to trenching operations so plan alternative routes when possible. After milling operations have occurred, the contractor will commence work at the intersection of Minnetonka Drive and Yellowstone Trail, and will head eastward on Yellowstone Trail.
Questions may be referred to on-site construction representative, Matt Havlik, 612-246-9347.
All construction is dependent upon weather.

Reporting Pot Holes
2016 Spring Watermain flushing began April 4 and will continue throughout the city until complete.
City water mains are flushed semi-annually in the spring and the fall. Households may experience rusty water, discoloration or low water pressure during flushing. However, if you do experience rusty water, running the cold-water tap will usually clean out your system. Call the Utility Division at 952.960.7900 if you have a problem related to flushing that does not clear up within 48 hours.
