Private well owners in Olmsted, Goodhue, Wabasha, Winona, Fillmore, and Houston Counties are eligible for financial assistance to address drinking water quality concerns in their private wells.
The safe drinking water for private well users assistance program provides funding to eligible landowners or renters to replace, reconstruct, or treat drinking water supplies that are contaminated with nitrate-nitrogen. Olmsted, Goodhue, Wabasha, Fillmore, and Root River (Houston) Soil and Water Conservation Districts and Winona County were provided funding through the Minnesota Department of Health’s Clean Water Funds to facilitate the program. The private water supply must be used as a source of drinking water for the residence to qualify for financial assistance.
