The WaterShed Partners is an innovative, dynamic coalition of over 60 public, private, and non-profit organizations in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Minnesota metropolitan area. Through collaborative education and outreach, we promote a public understanding that inspires people to act to protect water quality in their watershed.
What we do
The WaterShed Partners believe that by working together and pooling resources, we can reach more people with information about the importance of clean water and what to do to keep it clean. To learn about the work of the WaterShed Partners, go to the Current Projects page.
What is an urban watershed?
A watershed, or drainage basin, is the area of land that rain and snowmelt flows over on its way to entering a lake, river, or wetland. Even if your home is not next to a lake, river, or wetland, you still live in a watershed.
What is runoff pollution?
In the city, water flows over streets and sidewalks and into storm drains, which go directly into rivers and streams without being treated. So when water picks ups trash or pollutants, it carries them directly to the nearest lake or river. This is run-off pollution. To prevent it, cut down on lawn fertilizers, rake up leaves and grass clippings, and keep streets clean.
The WaterShed Partners meet regularly, the second Wednesday of each month to network, share information, and hear presentations on important topics related to stormwater education. The meetings take place from 9:00 -11:00 am at the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) offices at 2522 Marshall Street NE, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55418. Phone: 612-465-8780. Please join us. All are welcome!
Directions: www.mwmo.org/Contacts.html; Meeting Room: The session will be held in the larger of the two buildings that make up the MWMO facility. Go to the "downstairs" classroom, which is on the main level of the building; Parking: To park at MWMO, enter on south side of building, keep right and drive past parked cars that are angled funny, as though you are going the wrong way.
