Floodplain Regulations Affecting Shorewood

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. You can find more information at:

Reporting Pot Holes

Pot Holes can happen overnight and your car has an easy time finding brand new holes! Please report all pot holes to the city, county or MnDOT accordingly.

2016 Spring Watermain flushing began April 4 and will continue throughout the city until hydrant

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.


City code requires for-profit solicitors to get a solicitation license from the city. Each solicitor must carry a copy of the license, and they must be able to show it upon request. No FEMA solicitors will be going door to door. Call 9-1-1 if you are contacted by one.
