Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, MN -

We could get a better idea of the water quality in the Land of 10,000 Lakes on Wednesday.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton plans to roll out a new report Wednesday afternoon.

In it, will be the findings from 10 Water Quality Town Hall meetings held last year all across the state. 

According to Dayton's office, a previous report showed more than 40 percent of Minnesota's waters are currently listed as impaired or polluted. Dayton has proposed a $167 million investment in his Public Works Bill to help ensure more Minnesotans have access to clean water. 

He plans to release the new findings at 1:30 p.m. with local leaders and state experts at his side.
