The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is proposing a change to the sulfate water quality standard in Minnesota waters, one designed to protect wild rice from sulfate pollution.

Dismissing the proposed new standards as "really all political," the Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness are encouraging people to attend a videoconference tomorrow before the public comment period on the new standards closes November 22.

More information about the videoconference in Duluth is here.
