Fire hydrants are flushed each spring to ensure their reliability and to remove any mineral buildup in the system.  Residents may notice discolored water for a short period after flushing. Although the water is safe for consumption, you may want to reschedule laundry. If you see discolored water, flush out the pipes by running the laundry tub faucet or the outside faucets. 

Frequently Asked Questions: Hydrant Flushing

Well Sealing

Homes connected to city water may still have an unsealed well located in the basement well room, or in the yard. Unsealed wells may allow water below the ground to contaminate the aquifers used for city water. A well that is no longer in use may be a threat to health, safety, and the environment. Sealing is a process of clearing and filling an unused well with a special material called grout.

Protecting the Groundwater is Everybody's Business

Do you currently have a well that you’re not using? Groundwater is the main source of drinking water for most people in the metro area – and protecting it is in the best interest of your community and future generations.

The State of Minnesota requires property owners to get a Water Well Maintenance Permit or have the well sealed. You may choose to continue using your well for irrigation.
