BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE SOURCE WATER PROTECTION PROGRAM “THE MINNESOTA EXPIERENCE”
Abstract:This paper presents the history, current status and future plans of a cooperative partnership between state and regional agencies and local water suppliers. This two-year project entitled “Upper Mississippi River Source Water Protection Initiative” is a collaborative effort among the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), the Metropolitan Council, The Mississippi Headwaters Board, and the Rivers Council of Minnesota and the three major public water suppliers in the area; the Minneapolis Water Works, St. Paul Regional Water Service and St. Cloud Public Utilities. It builds on the Mississippi River Defense Network (RDN) and it illustrates the cooperative and cross-jurisdictional approach that is needed in order to develop and implement long-term strategies for protecting public water supplies. This initiative is supported in part by a Clean Water Partnership Grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).
