Three hundred concerned Minnesotans came to the Heintz Commons at Rochester Community and Technical College on Monday night as part of a town hall on water quality. This was the first of 10 town hall meetings as part of Gov. Mark Dayton's "25 by 25" clean water initiative, which aims to improve water quality in Minnesota by 25 percent by 2025.
