Tracking Minnesota's Clean Water Legacy Effectiveness

Andy Holdsworth (MN Dept. of Natural Resources) and Tannie Eshenaur (MN Dept. of Health)

Friday, December 16, 2011. 8:00-9:30 a.m. at the McKnight Foundation (710-2nd Street South, Suite 400, Minneapolis)

Minnesotans want to know if our water is getting cleaner and how Clean Water Funds are being spent. These questions and many others are being addressed by a multi-agency team whose goal is to develop a clean water tracking framework that will help clarify the connections between funds invested, actions taken, and clean water outcomes achieved. The heart of the Framework is a suite of 36 quantifiable performance measures that tell a cohesive, meaningful story about Minnesota's water bodies, watershed and groundwater health and the actions of agencies and partners working to restore and protect Minnesota's waters. This presentation will describe the Framework and the related "Clean Water Performance Report," to be released in February 2012.
