Ramsey Conservation District Well Sealing Cost-Share Program
100 wells will be sealed under this grant.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
Ramsey County, the most densely populated county in Minnesota, generates high levels of contaminated runoff from its impervious surfaces. When contaminants drain into abandoned and unused wells, it threatens the health of Ramsey County citizens who depend on groundwater as their main potable water source. The Ramsey Conservation District will continue the implementation of its popular and successful well sealing cost-share program to help protect the groundwater, especially in drinking water supply and wellhead protection areas, by permanently and professionally sealing 100 abandoned wells in the county.
