Maintain the City's Wellhead Protection Plan.
Wellhead protection is a means of protecting public water supply wells by preventing contaminants from entering the area that contributes water to the well or well field over a period of time.
Some properties in Brooklyn Center have private wells which are primarily used for irrigation purposes. Private wells which are no longer in use should be properly sealed. Unused wells which may be used in the future require a special maintenance permit issued by the Minnesota Department of Health.
