Wells
New well construction, well sealing or any reconstruction or repair of an existing well that modifies the well casing needs to be done by a licensed well contractor. An approved well construction or well sealing permit is needed before work begins. This office reviews and issues well and well sealing permits to ensure compliance with Minnesota Rules. We take certified water samples when requested. We also provide information on wells and water quality.

Individual Sewage Treatment Systems
Any time a new septic system is to be installed or an existing system is replaced or repaired, an approved septic system permit is required. This permit must be approved before any construction takes place. This office reviews applications and approves septic permits. This office also takes complaints and investigates the validity of complaints relating to septic systems. We also provide enforcement on non-compliant systems. Information on septic systems can also be obtained through this office.
