Water Monitoring

Groundwater & Well Water Monitoring Program

Le Sueur County’s drinking water is predominately groundwater dependent.  Additionally, the aquifers supply water to not only county residents but also to the metro area.  It is recommended to test your drinking water at least once per year in order to monitor potential contaminants that could be a risk to your health.  

Le Sueur County Water Testing Clinic Spring 2022

Le Sueur County Environmental Services, Le Sueur County Public Health & Le Sueur Soil & Water Conservation District has partnered together to create a new water monitoring program for Le Sueur County residents. 

The Spring Water Testing Clinic was held on Thursday, April 28th.  We received 39 participants!  The Spring clinic included water kits for nitrates and coliform bacteria.

Le Sueur County is hoping to host water testing clinics 1-2 times per year!  Please check back in September to see if there will be a fall water testing clinic in 2022.
