July is MPR Water Month

During Water Month (July 2019), MPR will once again highlight stories, insights, and reporting about water. You’ll hear water programming on MPR News, Classical, and the Current - on air, through live events, and on the web.

This year’s special focus is getting people outside to experience and enjoy our water resources. We know people take care of the things they feel connected to, and science is showing us that a connection to the outdoors is essential to human health and well-being.
