Dayton threatens to veto bill to nullify wild rice water standard

Gov. Mark Dayton has warned lawmakers he’ll veto a bill to nullify the state’s wild rice water quality standard if it reaches his desk without changes.

The governor said in a letter Thursday he recognizes it’s not technically or economically feasible for the mining industry or municipalities to comply with the existing standard, which limits discharges of sulfates into waters where wild rice grows to 10 milligrams per liter.
