The City of Carver is issuing the results of monitoring done on its drinking water for the period from January 1 to December 31. The purpose of this report is to advance consumers' understanding of drinking water and heighten awareness of the need to protect precious water resources.
The City of Carver provides drinking water to its residents from a groundwater source: four wells ranging from 470 to 738 feet deep, that draw water from the Mt. Simon, Tunnel City-Eau Claire, and Tunnel City-Wonewoc aquifers.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency sets safe drinking water standards. These standards limit the amounts of specific contaminants allowed in drinking water. This ensures that tap water is safe to drink for most people. The United States Food and Drug Administration regulates the amount of certain contaminants in bottled water. Bottled water must provide the same public health protection as public tap water.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1‑800-426-4791.
Call Public Services Director, Chad Shell, at 952-448-8740 if you have questions about the City of Carver's drinking water.
