The City of Ramsey was incorporated in 1974 and established their initial water supply facility shortly after in 1984. Today, Ramsey city water services approximately half the City’s population and comes from 8 deep wells that draw from the Ironton-Galesville aquifer. There are 3 water towers, which have a combined water storage capacity of 4 million gallons.

Ramsey adds chlorine and fluoride to the water for disinfection and dental hygiene before it is distributed to homes and businesses across the city.

Wellhead Protection

In order to protect the City’s wells, the City of Ramsey has developed a Wellhead Protection Plan, approved by MDH. Most recently, their Part 1 Plan and Part 2 Plan updates were approved in 2019. Ramsey has been involved with the Anoka County Municipal Wellhead Protection Group since 2014, but has not officially signed the Joint Powers Agreement.
