Water - But Not Too Much - for Valley Branch Creek
(pg 2 of 5)

Woodbury is one of the fastest growing communities in the Twin Cities. It increased from 6,000 residents in 1970 to more than 48,000 in 2000. The population will nearly double again, to more than 83,000, by 2020.

Home development has brought new roads, parking lots, and malls. Many citizens, conservation groups, and government agencies are concerned that such development will degrade Valley Branch Creek.
