Important for the Community
The City of Wayzata nestles around scenic Wayzata Bay and looks out over the long expanse of Lake Minnetonka, with its sparkling blue waters, wooded and meandering shoreline, islands and many secluded bays. Because of Wayzata's environment, water conservation and protection are very important for the community. Lake Minnetonka is a beautiful resource - one that cannot afford to be wasted.

Although Minnesota appears to have a more than adequate supply of water, increasing demand from domestic, agricultural, and industrial water users can strain water resources and municipal water supply systems, especially during periods of drought.
