Notice: 2020 Jordan Drinking Water Report Available

Making Safe Drinking Water

Your drinking water comes from a groundwater source: three wells ranging from 287 to 550 feet deep, that draw water from the Mt. Simon, Tunnel City-Wonewoc and Wonewoc-Eau Claire aquifers.

Jordan works hard to provide you with safe and reliable drinking water that meets federal and state water quality requirements. The purpose of this report is to provide you with information on your drinking water and how to protect our precious water resources.

Contact Steve Kochlin, Asst;,at 952-492-2535 or freshwater@jordanmn.gov if you have questions about Jordan’s drinking water. You can also ask for information about how you can take part in decisions that may affect water quality.

The U.S. 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 U.S. 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.
