Water Supply Planning

Council out front in regional planning

Population growth and expanding development are increasing demands on our water supplies in the region. Coordinated planning by local communities, the Metropolitan Council, and state partners will help meet our future water supply needs.
The role of the Metropolitan Council in water supply planning is to:

  1. Work with regional partners to develop a regional plan,
  2. Maintain a database of technical information,
  3. Provide assistance to communities in developing their local water supply plans, and
  4. Identify approaches for emerging issues.
