The City of Fridley was incorporated in 1949 and established their initial water supply facility shortly after in 1956. Today, Fridley city water services 100% of the City’s population and comes from 13, 11 of which are they primary water supply wells. The wells pump from a variety of different deep aquifers including the Mt. Simon Sandstone, the Prairie du Chien Group, the Tunnel City-Wonewoc, the Jordan Sandstone, and a buried sand and gravel aquifer, which is closer to the surface.

The City also obtains treated water from the City of New Brighton under a beneficial re-use program. This program was reestablished in late 2018 after New Brighton’s new augmented treatment system went online.

The City of Fridley maintains 4 reservoirs and 3 filtration plants, in addition to their 13 wells. They are in the process of constructing the Locke Park Water Treatment Plant Improvement Project, which will improve the reliability and treatment of the municipal water supply, as well as provide benefit to the environment via power usage reduction and maximizing water re-use.
