The City of Circle Pines was incorporated in 1950 and established their initial water supply facility shortly after in 1958. Today, Circle Pines city water services 100% of the city’s population and comes from 2 municipal wells. One of these wells pumps from the deeper Jordan Sandstone aquifer and the other pumps from the unconsolidated, confined Quaternary-age sand and gravel aquifer.

The City of Circle Pines’ water treatment facility removes iron and manganese from, and adds chlorine and fluoride to, the pumped well water before it is distributed to homes and businesses in the City.
