Summary

This Act gives the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency broad responsibility to establish pollution standards for state waters; monitor water conditions and sources of pollution; review construction, installation, and operational practices which may lead to additional pollution; establish and revise pretreatment standards; and regulate wastewater treatment plants, stormwater discharges, disposal systems, point sources, and radioactive discharges. Separate standards exist for waters in the Lake Superior Basin. See the Minnesota Administrative Rules, sections 7050-7060 for more specific regulations.
