The goal for the City of Lake Elmo is to provide safe and high-quality drinking water to the residents. This is accomplished by developing and implementing a wellhead protection program. This program is accomplished in two ways. First, is the implementation of testing. The utility department collects samples daily to check Chlorine and fluoride levels at multiple spots in the city as well as bacterial samples monthly. The Minnesota Department of Health also does regular testing at the wells and other locations as needed. The second way a wellhead protection program helps to provide safe drinking water is through education. In addition to City resources, links to the Minnesota Rural Water and Minnesota Department of Health website can be found below. If you have any questions, please contact Public Works at (651) 747-3940.
