Metro Watershed Under Stress

A new report from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency says water quality in the lakes and streams throughout much of the Mississippi River-Twin Cities watershed is poor. 

The cause - industry, housing and roads. 

Too much bacteria, too many nutrients and erosion are making life difficult or impossible for life to exist in the waters all around us. Glenn Skuta is Section Manager for the Pollution Control Agency's Environmental Analysis and Outcomes Division. He talked with KFAI’s Ron Thums, who asked about the overall water quality in the Twin Cities area.
