5.3 Education Program

The District operates a watershed-wide Strategic Education and Communications program that provides general information of wider interest as well as targeted information.  The targeted education and public input activities identified in this plan, including working with the Lake Virginia Association and promoting a Lake Minnewashta Association, will be implemented to assist in the reduction of existing pollutant loading to the lakes and other water resources in the subwatershed as well as to minimize the impacts of future development.  The specific targeted messages will emphasize conservation of the remaining high-value resources in the subwatershed and developer education targeting Better Site Design, infiltration, and conservation of undisturbed native vegetation as sites develop.
