Protecting the Minnesota River

Protecting the natural resources of the Minnesota River Valley is the mission of Friends of the Minnesota River. One of the most serious challenges in this area is dealing with fluctuating water flow on the main stream of the Minnesota River and major tributaries.

The focus of the Agricultural Drainage Initiative is to monitor proposed increases in agricultural drainage and seek to mitigate increased flow resulting from those projects. In many cases this effort has taken the form of seeking environmental review of the projects.
