Your Green Life: Minnesota 2020 Water Plan to focus on climate change

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The climate for action is changing. That’s according to the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board (EQB).

During a meeting this month, the board says Minnesota’s next 10-year plan for water management will have a key focus.

The proposed approach of the 2020 Water Plan is to focus on climate change and sustainable water management.

The outcome of that approach would include a deeper understanding of how climate change or variability affects water management, prioritized actions for the coming decade, and shared priorities and vision across agencies.

The EQB oversees the drafting of the plan but works many agencies and commissions including the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, The Department of Natural Resources and The Department of Health.

The report states, the impact of increased rainfall and drought on the state’s water resources and water infrastructure are factors state environmental regulators will discuss as part of the plan.

A final version of the plan should be out next fall.
