Four MnTAP intern projects to protect water resources are at Anoka County companies

MnTAP Intern Symposium

This year’s MnTAP Intern Symposium includes water conservation and pollution prevention projects at 4 companies in Anoka County. The Symposium features 15 projects at companies around the state. The interns will highlight the opportunities they have identified for saving water, energy, and waste during their 3-month internships. Groups of four interns will each present 10 minute summaries of their projects followed by a panel question and answer period. A poster session will also allow attendees time to learn more about each project.  Join them on August 16th at the McNamara Alumni Center, University of Minnesota.
