The Minnesota Public Facilities Authority has decided to approve a plan to increase funding for water and infrastructure throughout the state of Minnesota. The plan will bring an estimated $28.35 million dollars, the funds will mostly be used to fix and change old equipment used in water systems. “I’m working hard to rebuild infrastructure in every corner of our state,” said Governor Walz. “I’m excited that $28 million dollars will be going directly to these greater Minnesota communities to help improve their water quality. Everyone in Minnesota deserves clean drinking water–regardless of their zip code.” Funding has been approved for Crystal Bay Township, Fertile, Glenco, Glenwood and Rice County, but Governor Walz says it could be coming to other counties sooner rather than later.
