This report provides information on the State of Minnesota's water budget, human impacts, concerns in water use and protection, and strategies for water supply management. It is not specific to the Lake Superior region. From the report's conclusion: "Industry, agriculture, housing, manufacturing, power generation, and well managed public water supply are all necessary elements to nurture and sustain communities. To maintain all the natural resource features that contribute to Minnesota’s attractive quality of life, including fish and wildlife habitat and recreational opportunities, each growth and development decision needs to include consideration of its effect on the water supply and associated water resources. Careful consideration of the effect each use may have on the available water supply is essential for the sustainability of the water supply and the water supply’s ability to be recharged for future growth, development, and enjoyment."
