Gov. Mark Dayton travels to Edgerton, heart of farm country, to talk water quality


EDGERTON, Minn. – Gov. Mark Dayton brought his aggressive effort to prevent farm pollution from endangering the state’s water supply to an area deeply skeptical of him and his plans.

The DFL governor traveled more than 200 miles Wednesday to this rural southwest Minnesota region to continue his latest push for what he calls a “water ethic,” as well as $220 million in spending that would go mostly to outstate communities faced with aging water systems and alarming levels of pollution, often from farm runoff.
