Become a Lake Steward!
Do you own property along a lake? The Minnesota Lakes and Rivers (MLR) Lake Steward Program launched a program to support lake associations in their efforts to improve water quality. Participating lake associations can send out a simple online questionnaire to members so that they can "score their shore." If a candidate's property meets Lake Seward standards, they are awarded an attractive sign to display at the end of their dock.
Take the My Water Pledge
Do your part to protect water quality and conserve water by joing the My Water Pledge challenge. My Water Pledge is a friendly competition between cities across the U.S. to see who can be the most “water-wise.” Mayors nationwide will challenge their residents to conserve water, energy and other natural resources on behalf of their city through a series of informative, easy-to-use pledges online.

Join the Citizens Advisory Committee
Do you care about the lakes, creeks, wetlands, and groundwater in your community? Do you wonder how you might help to protect and restore them? Become a volunteer on the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) and make a difference through sharing your community insights and ideas.
This is a volunteer position, that is appointed by the Board, and supports its mission to protect, manage, and restore water resources. The CAC meets monthly, and for occasional additional meetings. New members will begin their service at an orientation meeting in January and serve two-year terms. There is no term limit. CAC members must live within the watershed (check here).
Stay tuned for info on how to join the CAC in 2022.
