Fridley joins in making well sealing grants available

The City of Fridley has grants available to assist property owners with sealing unused wells. The grants provides 50% reimbursement of eligible costs (up to a total of $750) for contracted well sealing work. If you have a well and are interested in having this work done, please complete the application.

Cost-share grants available for a limited time. The cities of Blaine, Circle Pines, Fridley, Lexington and Lino Lakes have established a Well Sealing Cost Share Grant program for residents (and property owners) to have old wells sealed near a city well that supplies drinking water to the community. The grant is available to residents to seal unused wells before April 2016. Contact your city Wellhead Protection Manager to obtain a well sealing cost-share grant application:

See the Directory of Area Water Well Contractors to obtain bids to seal abandoned wells. For more information on well sealing go to the MDH Well Sealing webpage.

Disclosing wells during a sale or property transfer. When a home, farm, or other property is sold or transferred Minnesota Statutes, section 103I.235 requires the seller to disclose the number and the status of all wells on the property and provide a sketch map showing the location of each well. Often unused wells are sealed at that time. However a cost-share grant may not be available.

Is your property in a Drinking Water Supply Management Area? Go to the DWSMA Map to see if your property is close enough to a municipal drinking water supply well to be included in the City’s Drinking Water Supply Management Area.

The grants must be applied for; awarded; and used by April 2016, so please do not delay in applying.
