Water use and sustainability (an update)

On March 11, 2013 the League of Women Voters ABC (Anoka, Blaine and Coon Rapids) held a forum on Water Supply Sustainability in the North Metro. The conversation continues throughout the state.

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services Manager, Keith Buttleman’s, presentation (Testing the limits of the regions aquifers) shows a shift in metropolitan municipal water use from surface water (i.e. Mississippi River) to ground water that is “not sustainable.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources mission is to work with citizens to conserve and manage the state’s natural resources. Learn more about Minnesota’s program on the DNR Sustainability of Minnesota’s Ground Waters website and accurate information on water levels and trends on the Water Resources Data webpage.

WHAT CAN YOU DO? Choose your home/business water conservation options that are provided on the WaterSense website (USEPA) or on the Water Conservation Toolbox webpage (Metropolitan Council).  Combined, our conservation efforts will add up.
