The City of Carver has many beautiful floodplain areas. The undisturbed river bottoms and creeks provide a wide range of benefits to the people and natural systems.
These areas provide breeding and feeding grounds for fish and wildlife, create an enhanced waterfowl habitat, and protect habitats for rare and endangered species. They provide open space and aesthetic pleasure in areas for active and passive users. They also provide flood storage and conveyance, and reduce flood velocities and flood peaks.
Although the City has a storm sewer and drainage maintenance program, it is impossible to keep all drainage systems clear at all times. As a citizen, you can assist by keeping the banks, ditches, and streams clear of brush and debris, and not allow grass clippings, oil, or other contaminants in the storm sewer inlets. Dumping of debris into ditches and streams is a major cause of local drainage problems, and is a violation of City of Carver regulations.
To report a violation or maintenance problem, please call the City at 952-448-5353.

Joking and friendly trash-talking provided some light moments during the annual Mayors Luncheon. The Nov. 14 event, sponsored by the SouthWest Metro Chamber of Commerce at the Chaska Event Center, featured leaders of Carver, Chanhassen, Chaska and Victoria.
The Chaska Police Department is testing a device that shoots out a thin yellow Kevlar cord that wraps around non-compliant suspects.
A comfortable retirement is possible in a wide variety of circumstances, though it might look different than expected and require some major changes in habits, a local financial adviser and author says in a new book.

Nov. 22, 1900: Henry Truhn and a charming young lady friend were seen here Monday. It looks a little as if Henry contemplated hitching onto a partner before extreme cold weather sets in. Hope it is so Henry.
He stands nearly 20 feet tall, lantern raised high over Holly Drive, where he has stood for over 100 years.
After the chaos and nastiness of the midterm election campaigns, I’m left with daunting questions about the way forward. The who-what-where-why-when-how answers elude and escape me, leaving me with feelings of hopelessness.
