Water Quality Business Owner Survey: Minnetonka

Prepared by students in COMM 5110 Environmental Communication (Instructor Mark Pedelty, Communication Studies) as part of the 2012-2013 Resilient Communities Project partnership with the City of Minnetonka.

Many businesses and industries in Minnetonka use and discharge a significant amount of water and use large amounts of energy as part of their operations. This project developed education and outreach strategies that assist businesses in the community to address water and energy conservation, as well as surface water protection, through their operations and site management.

In collaboration with more than 10 Minnetonka-based businesses, the project employed both ethnographic and survey methods to understand barriers and opportunities Minnetonka businesses face in pursuing strategies for improving water quality and conservation in their operations.
