Rochester honored with clean water award

ROCHESTER, Minn. – City leaders are getting some welcomed news when it comes to their storm water.

On Monday night, officials with the city received what is known as the Minnesota Blue Star Award. Basically it’s awarded to city’s who help protect local water quality and Rochester is now one of them. “We are working to manage our storm water run off because storm water does contain pollution and that’s going to wash right to our surface water, so we are doing things in various capacities to manage that storm water,” Storm Water Educator with the city of Rochester Megan Duffey Moeller said.

Moeller said residents can help too by washing their cars and picking up after their pets.
