About Us

Clean Water MN is an outreach program of the Metro Watershed Partners that celebrates metro area residents who use water-friendly practices. We provide information and assistance to those who want to join us in protecting lakes and rivers. Working together, we keep Minnesota waters clean.

Clean Water MN is sponsored by the Metro Watershed Partners, a coalition of more than 70 public, private, and non-profit organizations in the Minneapolis/ Saint Paul metro area, who work together to inspire people to protect water quality in their watershed. Founded in 1996, the Metro Watershed Partners is a project of Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
