Deanna White - Clean Water Action - Guest

Adam Fonda, Host

Deanna White visited Wayzata Rotary and presented an interesting overview of what the Clean Water Action MN organization does.  They focus on people, politics, and policies to ensure clean safe drinking water from source.  The organization does do lobbying, education, and works in electoral realms.  Public health is a major focus of the organization and the campaigns they work on stretch 5, 10, and 15 years.
 
The organization focuses on putting water first and ways to protect it.  Agricultural runoff, chemical reduction, and enforcing the Clean Water Act are areas the organization works with.  The organization also works to protect and restore the Great Lakes and tries to prevent pollution from going downstream.  What we do here in Minnesota directly affect the Gulf of Mexico! 
 
Members asked great questions!
