Kris Sigford

Kris has worked to clean up Minnesota’s waters for more than 30 years, and that work ultimately spans watersheds that reach all the way to the Gulf of Mexico, Hudson Bay and the Great Lakes. As MCEA’s senior policy advocate, Kris directs a comprehensive program aimed at improving water quality through full implementation of federal and state water quality law, adequate funding of water quality improvements, and innovative approaches to control agricultural sources of sediment and nutrients. With Kris’s efforts, Minnesota adopted a constitutional amendment dedicating $90 million annually to fund clean water programs throughout the state.
