Consumer Confidence Report

This Consumer Confidence Report is published yearly for the Waconia drinking water consumer, to present an overview of water quality during January 1 to December 31. Because the City of Waconia is a drinking water supplier, the city is required by the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) of 1976, as amended in 1996, to produce an annual report on the quality of its drinking water.

What the Report Addresses

In addition to advancing consumers’ understanding of drinking water and heighten awareness of the need to protect precious water resources, the report will address:
  • Where our water comes from
  • What analytical tests are conducted
  • What those tests reveal about the water
  • How those results compare to state standards


Among its other responsibilities, Waconia’s Public Services Utilities Department is committed to providing all employees, facility-users, and other guests with safe drinking water while they are in the city. Waconia’s drinking water supply system, which is considered by the EPA to be large water system serving 10,001-100,000 people. Waconia’s water supply system includes 4 wells ranging from 345 to 735 feet deep, that draw water from the Quaternary Buried Artesian and Mt. Simon aquifers. There are a number of advantages to an underground water supply. Communities with underground wells are able to avoid the Cryptosporidium and Giardi micro-organisms, which can contaminate surface water supplies and cause intestinal disorders. These wells are dedicated to pumping drinking water to the Water Treatment Facility. To make sure that Waconia’s drinking water meets all applicable local, state and federal water-quality standards, Waconia’s drinking water regularly tested using an independent laboratory approved by the Minnesota Department of Health.

Reviewing Data
