“The North and East Metro Groundwater Management Area Advisory Team will be meeting on Friday, May 29, 2020 through the web-based meeting format WebEx. A link to join the online meeting is available on the N & E Metro Groundwater Management Area webpage. The meeting is scheduled from 9 am to 11 am.

Groundwater management advisory team meetings are open to all people interested in groundwater issues in Minnesota. We encourage new people to come, as well as those who have attended previous meetings.”

The North and East Metro GWMA includes the Anoka County communities of Blaine, Centerville, Circle Pines, Columbia Heights, Columbus, Fridley, Hilltop, Lexington, Lino Lakes, and Spring Lake Park, along with portions of Hennepin County. The designation as a GWMA “allows a more comprehensive and focused approach to ensuring that groundwater supplies remain adequate to meet human needs, while protecting lakes, streams, and wetlands”.
