Increased Spending for Groundwater Monitoring
A $788 million spending bill has been passed by the Minnesota House on April 18th. The bill increases spending on groundwater monitoring and aquatic invasive species enforcement over the next two years.

The bill raises fees across the state for water use by more than $6 million a year for increases monitoring efforts. Fees for the state’s more than 7,000 water-permit holders – municipalities, agriculture irrigators and industries that use more than 1 million gallons annually will certainly be affected. The average household will see an increase as well.

The bill also includes $3.3 million to battle aquatic invasive species over the next two years. Part of the money will be used for new data management for the DNR conservation officers to have real-time information. About $2 millions will be used for grants to help local units of government to fight aquatic invaders through inspection and decontamination programs.
