City of Eagan

Sources of your drinking water

The City of Eagan provides drinking water from a deep underground “groundwater” source. The water is drawn from the Jordan, Mt. Simon, and Prairie Du Chien-Jordan aquifers. Eagan has 21 deep wells ranging from 408 to 1075 feet. The water provided to customers meets drinking water standards. The Minnesota Department of Health has also made a determination as to how vulnerable the source of water may be to future contamination incidents.
