Fund Source

Approximately 70 percent of all Minnesotans rely on groundwater as their primary source of drinking water. Wells used for drinking water must be properly sealed when removed from service to protect both public health and Minnesota’s invaluable groundwater resources.

Clean Water funds are being provided to well owners as a 50% cost-share assistance for sealing unused public water-supply wells.
