Water Quality and Quantity in the Land of 10,000 Lakes

In 25 years, will our water still be safe to drink, and will there be enough? Learn about the role safe drinking water plays in protecting the health of Minnesotans through demonstration, public health history, and contrasting examples from one of the presenter's work on water supply in Ethiopia. Discover the unique approach to drinking water protection Minnesotans provided by voting for the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment.

Emerging contaminants, aging infrastructure, and depleted groundwater all threaten the safe and reliable drinking water Minnesotans take for granted. The future of our drinking water depends on strong local to state partnerships across many sectors, and a strategic focus on protection as stated in Minnesota's Clean Water Roadmap.
