What water challenges does Rochester face?

Rochester MN Public Works Department ‎ Stormwater Speaker Series: Drinking Water in Rochester

With approximately 40,000 water customers, Rochester Public Utilities gets its water from underground aquifers. 

While the high-quality water available needs little treatment, Rochester’s growing population could provide challenges for maintaining water quality and quantity.

Meeting the challenges means planning infrastructure investments to ensure water supply, as well as protecting wells from contamination and preserving rare wetlands unique to Rochester.

Todd Osweiler of RPU will address the issue at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota – Cascade Meadow, 2900 19th St. NW, as part of the monthly Stormwater Presents Speaker Series. 

There is no cost to the program, which is part of Rochester's stormwater management program .
