Clean Water Actions

Water is one of Minnesota's most precious resources. We have done a lot to prevent pollution and to clean up our waterways; however, more still needs to be done. Everyone's actions on the land have a major impact on water quality, thus we all need to do more to help protect Minnesota's water.

There are many ways that each of us can have a positive impact on our water. Click on the links below to learn details on ways you can take action for clean water here in Rochester.
