Le Sueur County’s drinking water is predominately groundwater dependent. Additionally, the aquifers located within the county supply water to not only 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 & Le Sueur Soil & Water Conservation District partnered together to create a water monitoring program for Le Sueur County residents. The goal of the program is to provide resources and education to Le Sueur County residents by testing their well water. As a result, this will increase their awareness of the quality of their drinking water and prevent additional exposure to harmful pollutants.
Le Sueur County is currently able to test for phosphorus and nitrates. Each test is $15. If you are interested in testing your water for phosphorus or nitrates, please contact the Le Sueur County Environmental Services Department at 507-357-8538 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
