Northfield News and Owatanna Peoples Press • Water in the media, but is any of it good news?

I’ve been noticing lately how much water has been in the news. Not just the dramatic flooding in our area this fall, but the ongoing talk of agricultural buffers, the banning of triclosan and microbeads in soaps in Minnesota, plastic fibers from our clothing ending up in our water and sediments, drinking water in Flint, Michigan … the list goes on and on and on.

With all this news about the mounting challenges to our waterways and how we use (and abuse) water in ways we haven’t ever fathomed, it’s hard to feel like I can do something to make it better. But I can − we all can.
