Dayton Wants Minnesotans To Think About Their Daily Water Usage

FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton is asking Minnesotans to take a Water Stewardship Pledge, and to rethink how water affects their daily lives and how they use it.

Dayton made the announcement Tuesday at the Minnesota State Fair as part of his Year of Water Action. Minnesotans can take the place at several places on the fairgrounds and online on the governor’s website.

The pledge asks Minnesotans to rethink how water impacts daily life and future generations; to use water efficiently and wisely; to learn more about how they can help protect and preserve water; to make informed consumer choices; and to talk to each other about water issues.

Dayton has made improving water quality a major priority in his second term, focusing on increased public involvement and spending on water projects.

    Ethanol plants consume large quantities of water and are ruining the quality of rural wells. Just ask anyone within ten miles of a plant.
    A government subsidized cause of degraded water quality. Now here comes goverment to fix what they caused.
    The incompetence is astounding.

    Takes a lot of water to wash those big SUVs that the welfare refugees drive, And the runoff from the new town-homes and apartment complexes required for each new batch Dayton imports is astounding. Maybe Dayton could ration bringing in more of them.

    Save water! Good God…did you know there are over 10,000 ongoing investigations into paedophile crimes in Minnesota right now? Yes I do blame the DFL and Dayton for creating this environment… people forcing children to be presence to enhance their sexual experience and raping them because we keep telling everyone “pick your own sexual gender”, “pick your own everything sexually you want”, then wonder why the stories we are seeing in the news for Minnesota are all about people hurting small children sexually.
