Shoreview was awarded with the 2019 Sustainable City Award by the League of Minnesota Cities for its Water Consumption and Groundwater Awareness Project. This project tested a shared community conservation portal that could lead to a reduction in water use. The project partnered with WaterSmart Services and enables Shoreview residents to view online how much water they use compared to similar households in the community. During the testing stage of the project, residents saved over 8 million gallons of water using the WaterSmart portal.
In addition, Shoreview was named a 5 Step City in the Minnesota GreenStep Cities program.
A focus on sustainability is natural for Shoreview residents. With an abundance of green space and an incredible park system, preserving the area’s natural beauty is important to all of us.
