Update: Ongoing efforts to address high water

Snail and Grass Lakes, wetland areas within Vadnais-Snail Lakes Regional Park, and surrounding properties have experienced flooding. Snail beach, trails and natural areas within the park have also been impacted by the flooding.

Over the past two years, Ramsey County Parks & Recreation has been working with the city of Shoreview and the Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District in an effort to find the cause of the flooding and determine possible mitigation efforts.

Roads and trails around Vadnais-Snail Lakes Regional Park have seen construction activity ramp up as projects are underway to optimize drainage of high water in the area.

Information on drainage improvement projects can be found on the watershed district website.
