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. The treatment facilities remove iron and manganese and add polyphosphates and chlorine. Click here to view the Drinking Water Consumer Confidence Report for 2020.

Wellhead Protection

In order to protect the City’s wells, the City of Blaine has developed a Wellhead Protection Plan, approved by MDH. Their first plan was completed and approved in 2007, although updates are required on a regular basis. Most recently, their Part 1 Plan Amendment was approved in 2017 and their Part 2 Plan Amendment was approved in April 2018.
