$800,000 Grant to Help Reduce Pollution in NE Minneapolis

The MWMO is pleased to announce that we received an $800,000 grant from the Minnesota Board of Soil and Water Resources (BWSR) to address water quality and flooding issues in Northeast Minneapolis. The funds, which come from the state’s Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment, will be used to install a series of stormwater best management practices (BMPs) at the Columbia Golf Course in Northeast Minneapolis. The improvements will help protect the nearby Mississippi River as well as reduce flooding in the area.
