We look forward to seeing you there!
This spring's speakers include, Paul Moline from Carver County Water Management Organization, Peggy Knapp from the Freshwater Society and District Staff.
Paul Moline will be presenting on the Carver County Groundwater Initiative. Three-quarters of Minnesota’s resident get their water from groundwater. However, concerns are growing in regard to the unsustainable use of groundwater. Paul’s presentation will focus on what Carver County is proposing to help protect and manage this resource.
Peggy Knapp will present on the Master Water Steward program. The program certifies and supports community leaders to install pollution prevention projects that educate community members, reduce pollutants from urban runoff and allow more water to soak into the ground before running into storm sewer systems. The program will be coming to the District this fall. Help us protect our waters now and for future generations.
Josh Maxwell is the District Conservation Technician. Josh, in partnership with BARR engineering will be presenting the Creek Restoration Action Strategy study that includes analysis of all three creeks, Bluff, Riley and Purgatory in the District. This study will allow the District to approach all three creeks in a comprehensive manner, and develop a sound understanding of how healthy or unhealthy our waters are.
