The objectives of the conference were to discuss future electric energy needs in the state of Minnesota and alternative means for meeting these requirements. Issues identified were associated with: impact of power plant and transmission line proliferation on the natural environment, on the economics, on the life of the people, on the politico-legal situation in the affected areas and on the state if power plants and transmission lines are not built. Potential thermal water pollution was discussed, together with potential air pollution, solid wastes disposal problems, radiation hazards, land management schemes, and potential depletion of natural resources. The emphasis was on examination of all possible issues and not on problem solution. (WRSIC abstract)
