Who we are

Protect Valley Creek is a campaign by Citizens for Valley Creek, Inc, a nonprofit corporation registered with the Minnesota Secretary of State. We are local residents of Afton, Lakeland, Lake St. Croix Beach, and St. Mary’s Point, and supporters, concerned with the proposed Afton Septic Project that threatens Valley Cree, the St. Croix River, and key Native American cultural resources.

Our concerns

We have followed the Afton sewer project closely, concerned with its impact on Native American culture and spiritual heritage; its likely effect on the environment, including Valley Creek, the St. Croix River, and local flora and fauna; the increasing cost of the project; procedural irregularities; and the appropriateness of the project as a solution to the stated problems.

What we do

We attend public meetings on the topic, research the issues, spread awareness of the project, make multiple data requests from the various stakeholders, and are organizing and compiling the relevant material from the data requests on this website, our Facebook page, and our Twitter feed.
