Clean Water MN protects Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. We share stories and information to inspire metro area residents to adopt water-friendly practices for their yards, homes, and neighborhoods. Working together, we keep Minnesota waters clean.

About Clean Water MN

Clean Water MN is sponsored by the Metro Watershed Partners, a coalition of more than 70 public, private, and non-profit organizations in the Twin Cities metro area, working together to promote public understanding that inspires people to protect water quality. Founded in 1996, the Metro Watershed Partners is a project of Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

“Clean Water MN is based on the premise that stormwater pollution prevention activities more effectively reach the public when our member organizations pool resources and work together.”

Our campaign

Helps municipalities meet the education requirements of their municipal stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPP);

  • Places stormwater pollution prevention messages in the mass media; and
  • Maintains the website with clean water education resources for residents.

team-8Clean Water MN is a collaborative outreach project of the Metro Watershed Partners. Working together, we provide resources, training, and support for partners as they work with homeowners in the Twin Cities metro area to keep water clean and healthy.

To do this, we produce high-quality photographs, social media posts, blog and newsletter articles, and maintain the website. Electronic resources are shared by partners using trackable links. Data collected via trackable links enables Clean Water MN to measure and report the impact of our campaign, cumulatively, and within the communities served by our member organizations.
