FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) - Gov. Mark Dayton is asking Minnesotans to take a Water Stewardship Pledge, and to rethink how water affects their daily lives and how they use it.

Dayton made the announcement Tuesday at the Minnesota State Fair as part of his Year of Water Action. Minnesotans can take the place at several places on the fairgrounds and online on the governor’s website.

The pledge asks Minnesotans to rethink how water impacts daily life and future generations; to use water efficiently and wisely; to learn more about how they can help protect and preserve water; to make informed consumer choices; and to talk to each other about water issues.

Dayton has made improving water quality a major priority in his second term, focusing on increased public involvement and spending on water projects.
