Want $15,000? Got a good idea to address water issues in MN?

If so, check out this story on the Minnesota Idea Open challenge on water.

As the article says, Minnesota is commonly thought of as a state with abundant water (Land of 10,000 Lakes and all that).  But the recent Water Sustainability Framework produced by a team led by the U of M’s Water Resource Center has found many and serious threats both to our future water quality and quantity.

If you want to share ideas, send ’em along!  I’ll help for a very reasonable share of the prize!
