The City of Blaine was incorporated in 1954 and established their initial water supply facility quickly after in 1959. The City Water Supply consists of 17 deep, municipal groundwater wells, 7 of which supply the majority of water demand. Pumps in these wells pump groundwater to 4 water towers. Before the water is distributed to homes and businesses, it is pumped to one of 4 water treatment facilities. Blaine is currently constructing a 4th water treatment plant, which is scheduled to be operational in 2021. The treatment facilities remove iron and manganese and add polyphosphates and chlorine.
