Reducing Phosphorus Open House 18 Nov 13

Regulators are holding a series of open houses around Minnesota, including in New Ulm, to give people the chance to review and comment on a proposed statewide strategy for reducing phosphorus and nitrogen escaping into surface and groundwater. The statewide plan aims to get government agencies and groups working together to increase efforts to reduce nutrients entering Minnesota waters and those flowing downstream. In New Ulm a meeting will be held beginning at 3pm Tuesday at the Department of Natural Resources headquarters in New Ulm. The draft strategy is also open for review and comment through December 18th on the pollution control agency website.
