Agenda (.pdf format)

Will the Pine River Watershed you live and work in have enough good quality groundwater to support the well-being of local communities into the future?

These FREE informational events on groundwater sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources are tailored for local government staff and officials in the Pine River Watershed who are involved in planning for or implementing local water and land use practices or policies. Knowing why, who, and how to protect your invisible groundwater resource, that might be shared in the watershed, will influence the availability and quality of this essential, life-supporting resource.

Each event will provide 1) a basic, scientific understanding of groundwater and its interaction with surface water; and 2) various perspectives on why, who, and how to protect this essential, shared, resource.

To register for the morning event, local government staff should visit: https://mngts.regfox.com/groundwater

To register for the late afternoon event, elected and appointed officials should send an email to Sharon.pfeifer@state.mn.us.
