RESOURCES TO HELP US KEEP MINNESOTA WATER CLEAN


Minnesota's water resources are our State's treasures, and it is up to each of us to do our part to keep them clean and healthy.

Take a moment or two to browse these pages and learn a little more about how our every day actions, from proper lawn & pet care to raking up leaves and keeping trash where it belongs - can go a long way toward keeping our lakes, rivers and wetlands clean and healthy for generations to come. 

Most importantly: remember that streets connect to streams! Stormdrains pipe storm water (and the trash, leaves, grass clippings, pet waste and cigarette butts!) directly to your nearest water body - untreated! So please - don't feed the stormdrain!
