The 25% by 2025 town halls will offer Minnesotans an opportunity to discuss the water quality challenges facing their communities and our state, learn from experts, and engage with policymakers. The town hall meetings build on the momentum from Governor Dayton’s “25 by 25” Water Quality goal proposal, announced earlier this year. “All Minnesotans have a stake in water that’s safe for drinking, swimming, and fishing,” said Governor Dayton. “These town hall meetings will further the important conversations already happening across Minnesota around water quality. Together we can develop strategies and solutions that work for all of our communities.” Governor Mark Dayton and commissioners are conducting the town hall meetings in all corners of the state this summer and fall to listen to ideas to reduce water pollution by 25 percent by 2025. These meetings are free to attend and open to the public.
