Minnesota Department of Health publishes a new report on the state’s drinking water

The report evaluates how well water supplies in the state meet safe drinking water standards; it was released in conjunction with Safe Drinking Water Week in Minnesota. “Minnesota Commissioner of Health Dr. Brooke Cunningham emphasized the value of partnerships. ‘Providing reliable and safe drinking water to homes and businesses is the result of hard work and extensive partnerships,’ Commissioner Cunningham said. ‘Thanks to these partnerships, even in times like COVID-19, we can still go to our home faucets and expect to have plenty of safe water.’” The report also highlights some of the state’s central initiatives regarding drinking water, including “Health equity and affordable water as a human right”.
