Adopt an Island
Keep it clean
In 1989, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources created the Adopt-a-River program to help clean up the growing amount of trash lining the state's rivers. Since then, Minnesota Power has joined forces with over 200 other organizations to assist in the cleanup of Minnesota’s public waterways.
It is now time for Minnesota Power to take this initiative to a new level. MP's recreation compliance requirements are now providing increased opportunities for public use on and around reservoirs and rivers in Minnesota. This increase in recreational use has put added strain on the natural surroundings. There is now a growing daily challenge to clean up the man-made garbage that is accumulating throughout the waterways.
