Source of Water
The City of Detroit Lakes provides drinking water to its residents from a groundwater source: four wells ranging from 230 to 232 feet deep, that draw water from the Quaternary Buried Artesian aquifer.
The water provided to customers may meet drinking water standards, but the Minnesota Department of Health has also made a determination as to how vulnerable the source of water may be to future contamination incidents. If you wish to obtain the entire source water assessment regarding your drinking water, please call 651-201-4700 or 1-800-818-9318 (and press 5) during normal business hours.
