Everyone in Eagan contributes stormwater runoff. What you do around your home affects more than your property. Whether you're washing the car or maintaining the lawn, you're impacting the watershed. A watershed is the land area that drains to a surface water. If your car is leaking oil or you're littering pet waste, you're polluting surface waters.

Cost-Share Partnership Program

The City awards grants to resident and business partners who implement projects that benefit lakes and wetlands. The program provides technical assistance for efforts and reimburses a portion of project expenses. Typical projects include shoreland stabilization and buffers, rain gardens, and runoff-reduction practices. Projects should support one or more of the following priorities:

  • Improve water quality;
  • Reduce stormwater runoff;
  • Preserve, protect and enhance native plant communities;
  • Educate and engage the public.

Any resident, business, or entity that pays Eagan stormwater utility fees may petition for assistance through this program. Projects in-progress, partially completed, or fully completed before notification of City approval are ineligible. Projects required to correct City Code violation(s), that violate City Code, or that fulfill City stormwater requirements are ineligible. Portions of projects that exceed City stormwater requirements may be eligible.

The program is funded annually, but funding is limited. The City accepts applications year round. For questions or more information, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call (651) 675-5300.
