More so than any other state, the quality and quantity of water in Minnesota is central to our way of life.  It helps define who we are and what we value. Governor Pawlenty

Minnesotans place a high value on their water resources. Water provides jobs, drives quality of life, supports fish and wildlife, and is the cornerstone of a $10 billion a year tourism industry. Simply put water quality and quantity are central to our success as a state.

Despite their importance, Minnesota waters face increasing pressure from development, pollution, exotic species, and growing demands for drinking water. How we protect our water resources today will determine whether Minnesota remains prosperous in the future.
