There are a wide variety of ways to make your opinion about water quality count:
- Consider joining the District’s Citizen Advisory Committee group of engaged citizens that meets monthly and advises the Board of Managers on a variety of topics or the Farmer Led Council which discusses agricultural topics relating to water quality.
- Attend our monthly board meetings and speak during the public comment period at the beginning of meetings.
- Apply to be member of our board. Board members apply and are chosen by the county commissioners.
- Get involved in your lake association, sportsmen’s/women’s group, or community group and let them know you care about the quality of our water resources and what we all can do to help protect them. Two such organizations within the PLSLWD are the Prior Lake Association and the Spring Lake Association.
- Volunteer with the Watershed District to monitor a lake or stream through the Metropolitan Council Citizen-Assisted Lake Monitoring Program.
- Join us at our periodic volunteer events.
- Learn more about good water quality practices and use these best practices around your own home.
- Take advantage of our cost-share program to add native plantings, raingardens or native shorelines to your property!
- Invite Watershed District staff to provide a presentation at a meeting of your homeowners association, club, or other community organization.
