"Eau Claire" is the singular form of the original French name, "Eaux Claires", meaning "Clear Waters", for the Eau Claire River. According to local legend, the river was so named because early French explorers journeying down the rain-muddied Chippewa River, happened upon the Eau Claire River, excitedly exclaiming "Voici l'eau claire!" ("Here clear water!"), the city motto, which appears on the city seal.GeographyEau Claire is located at, approximately 90 miles east of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.
