How many Oakdale municipal wells exceed PFAS water quality standards and guidelines?

The city has nine wells. Water from two of the wells is treated by the city’s water treatment facility. Three other wells have no detection or levels below the allowable thresholds of PFAS. Water from these wells is enough to meet daily demands for the community. The remaining four city wells currently exceed PFAS water quality standards and guidelines. The city is evaluating options to address them, in cooperation with the MN Department of Health.
