Clean Water Fund
On November 4th 2008, Minnesota voters approved the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment to the state constitution.
The Amendment increased the sales and use tax rate by three-eighths of one percent, starting July 1, 2009 and continuing through 2034. The Funds that are Generated throught the tax will pay for on-the-ground conservation projects that provide multiple benefits for water quality and wildlife habitat.
The Pipestone Soil and Water has access to these funds, but needs Applicants in order to apply and obtain funds from the state. Each year we help producers apply for grant dollars and as grants are awarded we will provide technical assistance to help you get your conservation practice on the ground.
Throughout the past 4 years the Clean Water Fund has funded several Ag Waste Systems and updated a large number of septic systems within Pipestone County.
