Governor Tim Pawlenty established the Clean Water Cabinet in 2003. Its purpose was to coordinate and facilitate state efforts to protect Minnesota’s waters. A committee of the Environmental Quality Board, the cabinet helped the board address its water authorities. EQB staff supported the committee by providing technical support, documenting discussions on key water issues, capturing important activities of the cabinet in issues of the On the Waterfront, and designing and maintaining the cabinet’s web site. The cabinet, in turn, provided the forum through which EQB coordinated state actions and plans for identifying and addressing Minnesota’s priority water needs.
