Lake Elmo shuts down contaminated well and water tower


submitted photo • Lake Elmo took a well and a water tower offline March 28 following a recommendation from the Minnesota Department of Health, which discovered a perflurochemical concentration above its health-based advisory level. The affected well primarily served the Old Village area, providing water to properties south of the railroad tracks, along Lake Elmo Avenue South to Fifth Street. Properties in this area now are receiving clean water from two of the city’s other wells.

Lake Elmo shut down a city well and water tower March 28 due to contamination from perflurochemicals, often referred to as PFCs, which are man-made chemicals developed by 3M Company.

Kindness forecasted for Lake Elmo in 2018


submitted image • The Lake Elmo Rotary Club plans to hand out “pass it forward” cards to residents to promote its Kindness Campaign. The back of the card has a quick response code that can be scanned by cell phones to see what acts of kindness have happened in the area. The back of the card also lists examples of random acts of kindness, such as paying for the order behind you in the drive-through, visiting someone in a nursing home who doesn’t often get visitors and leaving a book you’ve finished where someone else can have it.

Lake Elmo Mayor Mike Pearson recently declared 2018 as “Random Acts of Kindness Year” in the city.
