2021 Drinking Water Report now available

Woodbury's drinking water is monitored regularly for contaminants, in accordance with federal and state laws. To advance consumers' understanding of drinking water and heighten awareness of the need to protect water resources, the monitoring results are published each spring in the city's annual Drinking Water Report. 

We are proud to report that no contaminants monitored under the Safe Drinking Water Act requirements were detected at levels that violated state and federal drinking water standards.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)

In addition to the contaminants that are tracked and measured under the Safe Drinking Water Act, the city, along with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), also is monitoring levels of PFAS in the water system. The MDH has established health standards and guidance values for specific PFAS parameters and has issued health advisories on nine of Woodbury's 19 wells since 2017.

The city removed all nine of these wells from service, and constructed a temporary water treatment facility near the intersection of Valley Creek Road and Tower Drive that brought four of these wells back into service in summer 2020. Today, work is underway to expand the temporary water treatment facility to bring two more wells back into service this summer. 3M and the State of Minnesota funded the construction and expansion of the temporary facility.
