In 2005, Metropolitan Council was directed to carry out regional water supply planning activities under Minnesota Statutes, section 473.1565. Working closely with the region's many water supply stakeholders and under the guidance of a metropolitan area water supply advisory committee, Metropolitan Council developed and adopted a metropolitan area master water supply plan (master plan) in 2010. The plan provides a framework for water supply planning and identifies actions needed to achieve the goal of ensuring sustainable water supplies across the region.
Non-personal interpretation provides visitors with opportunities to learn about the natural and cultural history of state parks at their leisure. Non-personal interpretation is an effective way to reach a wide variety of visitors without hosting a formal interpretive program. Wayfinding by using "You are Here" signs is an essential part of navigating state parks.
This project provides panoramic virtual tours of state parks, and panoramic plus video virtual tours of state trails and water trails. Each panoramic virtual tour is accompanied by an accessible/dial-up version highlighting the same scenes.
