Water, water everywhere?
Minnesota is proud of its over 10,000 lakes and clean groundwater. But, many Minnesotans are surprised to learn that Minnesota has both water supply and water quality concerns. Come learn about where potable water comes from in both the metro and greater Minnesota, water demand and supply, case studies of successful water conservation in healthcare facilities and how to protect patients from pathogens while also protecting water. While this event is Minnesota focused, please note, a great deal of this information is applicable to other Midwestern states.
