On November 4, 2008, Minnesota voters approved the Clean Water, Land & Legacy Amendment to the constitution to:
The Amendment increases the sales and use tax rate by three-eighths of one percent on taxable sales, starting July 1, 2009, continuing through 2034. Those dollars are dedicated to four funds: Outdoor Heritage Fund, Clean Water Fund, Parks and Trails Fund, and Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Wabasha SWCD has received funding from the Clean Water Land & Legacy Fund to help support the overall goal of the amendment.
