The Wellhead Protection (WHP) Plan for Elk River Municipal Utilities (ERMU) is required by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to control the potential contamination sources that present a risk to the City of Elk River’s drinking water. The goal for ERMU is to maintain a safe and adequate drinking water supply for the community that meets the safe drinking water requirements for protecting the public’s health, safety and general welfare of the community. If you have any questions about the plan, please call 763.441.2020. Click here to view a video from the Minnesota Department of Health about well sealing.
