The future of Minnesota’s clean water is very much in doubt. Unfortunately, 56% of Minnesota’s waters are already impaired and that is before we consider the possibility of allowing copper-sulfide mining, the EPA’s most polluting industry by chemical releases, to open upstream of Lake Superior, home to over 10% of the world’s freshwater.

The state must act decisively to ensure every Minnesotan has access to clean water for generations to come. Please contact your legislator using the form below, to encourage them to support a bill calling for a $650,000 appropriation for the Water Council, a consortium connected to the University of Minnesota, to develop a plan to ensure that Minnesota has an abundant supply of clean water for the next 50 years.
