It's not secret that clean, safe drinking water is becoming a growing concern in the U.S. and while Burnsville has an adequate supply, some may wonder: Is the quality of Burnsville's drinking water on par?
This Wednesday, residents are invited to find out during a meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013 from 1-3 p.m. at Burnsville City Hall to discuss issues, questions and concerns about the city's water supply. The meeting was prompted by a 10-year review of the city's “Wellhead Protection Plan.” The Wellhead Protection Plan enumerates all potential sources of contamination to Burnsville’s water supply, and summarizes measures that have been put in place to stave off contamination.
Up for discussion is the following:
- Identifying the protection boundary around Burnsville’s wells.
- Identifying the protection boundary around Burnsville’s entire drinking water supply management area
- Identifying the areas that could potentially be harmful to the water supply.
