“The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency monitors environmental quality, offers technical and financial assistance and enforces environmental regulations. The MPCA finds and cleans up spills or leaks that can affect our health and environment. Staff develop statewide policy, and support environmental education. The MPCA works with many partners — citizens, communities, businesses, all levels of government, environmental groups and educators — to prevent pollution and conserve resources.”
“The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) works with citizens to conserve and manage the state’s natural resources, provides outdoor recreation opportunities, and provides for commercial uses of natural resources in a way that creates a sustainable quality of life.”
“BWSR is the state soil and water conservation agency, and it administers programs that prevent sediment and nutrients from entering our lakes, rivers, and streams; enhance fish and wildlife habitat; and protect wetlands. The 20-member board consists of representatives of local and state government agencies and citizens.”
