GMNP to Governor: Proposed water quality standards will hamper economic growth

On June 24, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s (MPCA) Citizens Board voted to approve new standards for Minnesota rivers and streams. The Greater Minnesota Partnership is among several organizations that have voiced opposition to the proposed rules., which if implemented could unnecessarily cost businesses in the state millions of dollars.

The GMNP weighed in on the topic with a letter from President Gary Evans to Governor Dayton asking him to reject the proposed rules and send them back for a scientific peer review. A copy of the letter can be found here.
