Called the “Land of 10,000 Lakes," Minnesota actually has more than 14,000 bodies of water that are considered lakes – depending on who’s counting. One thing Minnesotans agree on, though, is that our waters are important for human health, promoting biodiversity and supporting many state industries including tourism, recreation and agriculture. The MAC recognizes responsible and innovative water management to reduce water consumption is vitally important now and will be increasingly important over the coming years.
Water Working Group
The MAC has established a cross-functional group of subject matter expert employees from across the organization that is focused on water use reduction on the MSP campus. This group develops and recommends strategies – from enhancing water use data collection and analysis to investigating systems for possible water capture and reuse – that will help the MAC reach its 2030 water-use reduction goal.
Over the past decade, the MAC replaced 18 existing MSP restrooms with a total of 12 new larger, consolidated facilities. With millions of passengers at MSP each year, these award-winning restrooms reduce water consumption through the use of water-saving fixtures.
