City of North Mankato Water Department

The Water Department provides over 500,000,000 gallons of safe and reliable drinking water to residents and businesses in North Mankato. The Department samples and tests the water daily to ensure that all residuals are compliant.

The Water Department produces an annual Consumer Confidence Report (see bottom of page) that includes detailed information about the city's water quality. Water provided by the City of North Mankato consistently meets or exceeds established water quality standards.

Source & Supply

Water within North Mankato city limits is supplied from a groundwater source via five wells that range in depth from 681 to 860 feet. Water is drawn from the Mt. Simon aquifer.

There are over 406,000 feet of water main and 1,488 valves in North Mankato.

The Water Department maintains 647 Fire Hydrants. Maintenance includes flushing all hydrants twice a year, which flushes the water main and enables them to check that the hydrant is working properly.

The department is also responsible for locating water and sewer services and the daily operation of the storm and sanitary stations.
