Water sustainability and water governance will be the focus of a policy forum to be held Nov. 17 by the Minnesota Environmental initiative. “Water Policy in Minnesota: Planning the Next Chapter” is the title of the forum, which will be held at Silverwood Park in St. Anthony.

Deborah Swackhamer, the co-director of the University of Minnesota’s Water Resources Center and the leader of an effort to write a 25-year plan for water sustainability in the state, will be one of the speakers. Princesa Vanburen Hansen from the Environmental Quality Board will speak on the EQB’s 2010 State Water Plan. There is charge for attending: $30 for MEI members, $60 for non-members.  The Freshwater Society and the Three Rivers Park District are host sponsors of the event. For information, click here.
