Most of us, I’m sure, appreciate our abundance of fresh potable water in the upper midwest and perhaps sometimes take for granted the seemingly limitless supply. As more and more of the United States and the world see the water supply become limited and in some cases restricted, it makes sense that we take a closer look at our water policies, our water usage, and our general perception of this most valuable resource.

My research into Wayzata water policy and usage reveal some very interesting data. My hopes for the initial piece of this study is to raise public awareness about water supply, usage, and pricing. Hopefully, conservation will be a fundamental element of this endeavor.

It only makes sense that all of us gain a better understanding of this essentail resource and to have a strategy ready for the day that our water supply becomes limited.
