Land & Water Conservation
Convener: The Land/Water Conservation Work Group is convened by Lindsey Ketchel, Executive Director of the Leech Lake Area Watershed Foundation.
Topics of Interest: This group is just forming and will decide whether to break into two groups: Land Use and Drinking Water. Issues we believe need to be addressed by this Work Group in early 2016: ground water contamination by risky farming and mining practices, buffer zones, land development policies and regulations, School Land Trust issues, and more.
Current Action: None at this time.
Meetings of the Work Group will begin in late Spring 2016.
Sign up to be involved: Become a member of the Northern Water Alliance and let us know your interest in the Land -Water Conservation Work Group. Members will receive notices of meetings and receive minutes.
