Well Sealing Cost Share Program


Homes currently connected to city water may still have an unsealed well located in the basement well room, or in the yard. Unsealed wells could potentially allow water just below the ground to contaminate the deeper drinking water aquifers used for city water. A well that is no longer in use can be a potential threat to health, safety, and the environment especially in sensitive areas such as drinking water supply management or wellhead protection areas. Sealing is a process of clearing an unused well of debris and filling the well with a special material called grout. Well sealing must be performed by a Minnesota licensed well contractor
