2016 Drinking Water Report
The City of Victoria is issuing the results of monitoring done on its drinking water for the period from January 1 to December 31, 2016. The purpose of this report is to advance consumers' understanding of drinking water and heighten awareness of the need to protect precious water resources.

Source of Water

The City of Victoria provides drinking water to its residents from a groundwater source: three wells ranging from 429 to 450 feet deep, that draw water from the Quaternary Buried Artesian aquifer.

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has determined that the source(s) used to supply your drinking water is not particularly susceptible to contamination. If you wish to obtain the entire source water assessment regarding your drinking water, please call 651-201-4700 or 1-800-818-9318 (and press 5) during normal business hours. Also, you can view the MDH report online. Victoria specific will be here.

Water grain levels should be set at hardness level 19.
Iron levels = 0.01ppm.

Call Chuck Almhjeld, Deputy Public Works Director, at 952-443-4210 if you have questions about the City of Victoria drinking water or would like information about opportunities for public participation in decisions that may affect the quality of the water.

Water Use Focus Group 

In 2017, a Water Use Focus Group will convene to review historic water use, the need for Well No. 5 and evaluate water conservation measures.  The outcome will be to documented feedback to be shared with the City Council as the Council considers implementation of conservation measures and/or construction of capital water infrastructure.
