Event Details

Groundwater modeling is showing that Minnesota’s current water use cannot be sustained into the future. Please join your peers from other MN cities -- either in person or online -- to learn how cities are and can help residents and businesses to cut water use/costs and save money. Hear about the Met Council’s Water Conservation Toolbox, the EPA’s WaterSense Program, city efforts in Centerville, Eden Prairie and Rogers, and order free toilet leak-finder tablets and deeply discounted spray valves & faucet aerators.
