Private Wells

Most residents are still served by private wells. For information on testing your well water, visit the Anoka County Well Water Testing website or contact the Environmental Services Department at 763-324-4260. You can also usually find lots of information on your well with the MDH Minnesota Well Index (MWI). Click here to access the webtool.
