2018 test results
We comply with all EPA guidelines to ensure that your drinking water is safe.
- Every three years, we test water in single family homes with:
- Lead service lines
- Lead pipes, or
- Copper pipes soldered with lead installed after 1982 but before the 1985 ban on solder containing high concentrations of lead
- In 2018, we tested water samples from 50 homes.
- An independent certified laboratory contracted by the Minnesota Department of Health analyzed all the samples.
- All homes tested below the EPA’s Action Level for copper.
- Two homes tested above the 15 parts per billion (ppb) Action Level for lead.
- Follow up testing showed the lead levels were from the kitchen faucet not the premise plumbing.
- Letting the water run briefly decreased the lead levels to below 1 ppb
- We've never had a violation of the Lead and Copper Rule of 1991.
