This program explores concerns about Minnesota’s aging water infrastructure. Many drinking water systems, sanitary sewers and storm sewers throughout the state are rapidly approaching the end of their useful life, so communities of all sizes are trying to come up with ways to replace these vital utilities that are routinely taken for granted. The rural cities of Brandon, Hoffman, and Battle Lake are featured, in addition to the city of Duluth and communities within the Twin Cities area, to demonstrate how each of them are grappling with the task of maintaining a high quality standard of water in this time of tight budgets. Co-produced by tpt’s Minnesota Channel and Central States Water Environment Association-Minnesota Section.Sunday, April 20, 2014 at 9:00 PM
