Wastewater & Water

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services

Clean water and a clean environment are essential to a healthy life, and we are committed to both.

We treat wastewater for 110 cities and townships with 2.7 million people in the Twin Cities metro area, monitor air and water quality, and plan for a long-range water supply to meet future demand.

We consistently achieve near-perfect compliance with federal and state water discharge standards while holding customer rates to 40% below the national average. We have significantly cut our purchased energy costs in the wastewater system and continue to reduce our climate impacts. 

Our Environment Committee addresses issues of sewer policy and planning, environmental reviews, wastewater facilities and treatment, water supply, nonpoint-source pollution, and federal and state regulations.
