About KTF

The Know The Flow website (www.KnowTheFlow.us) is a water resources management initiative to provide public information and coordination among Anoka County agencies, communities, and water management organizations.  The website was initially established by the municipal members of the Anoka County Municipal Wellhead Protection Group, who combined their resources and energy to establish the Know the Flow website. The site has since grown into the collaborative, county-wide resource that it is today. Anoka County Environmental Services coordinates the Know The Flow website.  For more information, or to post information or events, contact Abby Shea (763-324-4207; Abby.Shea@co.anoka.mn.us).

Anoka County addresses local water resource issues in a cooperative effort with the Anoka Conservation District, 21 communities (cities and township), 7 watershed management organizations, lake associations, and other interested parties. Click here to learn more about these partners.

The Anoka County Water Resources Management Report, prepared by the Anoka County Environmental Services Department in partnership with the Anoka County Water Resources Management Task Force, outlines a coordinated approach to water resource protection and management.  Members of the Task Force provide advice and recommendations for a county-wide effort to protect our citizens as we protect and manage our water resource. The group regularly meets twice per year.

The members of the Anoka County Municipal Wellhead Protection Group have established an efficient and cost effective cooperative program to protect the groundwater source of community drinking water systems through jointly implementing common elements of their wellhead protection plans.  The municipal members of the Group combined their resources and energy to establish the Know the Flow website (see Statement of Purpose and Authorization), which has since grown.  Wellhead protection is a program to reduce the impacts of pollution on groundwater near public water supply wells.
