Minnesota’s Water Industry Economy Profile is the state’s most comprehensive effort to quantify the businesses, employment, wages, patents and investments directly engaged in the water industry. In addition, this report assesses ways to support industry competitiveness.


This report focuses on four core water industry segments: water treatment, infrastructure & management, efficiency and utilities. This represents a subset of the “water-enabled” industry analyzed by other reports.
