Where can I find information about existing wells on my property?
Information on in-use wells can be obtained from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) Minnesota Well Index or by calling the Blue Earth County Environmental Service Department (BECES). Information on sealed wells can be obtained by calling BECES.

Additionally, a property owner may obtain well information from a local well contractor. Look for a contractor sticker on the well control panel or pressure tank. If there is no sticker then call the nearest well contractor since they usually work a specific area around where their business is located. Information on the location of wells on a property may be obtained from the state’s well disclosure database or other county or city resources like building or zoning permits, septic system permits, etc.
