Investing in East Metro drinking water

The final Conceptual Drinking Water Supply Plan provides safe, sustainable drinking water to the affected 14 East Metro communities now and into the future. The State of Minnesota, along with community leaders, built a final plan that is comprehensive, safe and sustainable, resilient and flexible.

Community projects

Each of the 14 affected communities received a tailored project list based off their needs, community feedback and cost estimates. Learn more about the types of projects that will be used to enhance drinking water in these communities.
