In Minnesota Water is a project of the Environmental Law & Policy Center that celebrates the value of Minnesota's waterways and seeks solutions for the water pollution issues affecting Minnesota residents. By sharing stories of how water quality affects people across the state, we hope to demonstrate the critical role clean water plays in people's daily lives and build support for the policies and practices that will improve water quality in Minnesota.
This project is supported by a generous grant from the N.E.S.T. Foundation and by the important work of ELPC's colleague organizations and outdoor recreation businesses working to create cleaner water and a better future for Minnesota. We are especially grateful to our talented reporter and photographer, Daniel Cusick and Courtney Perry.
