Private well owners check on connecting to city water

Many private well owners in Shorewood can connect to city water. For over 15 years the access charge has been $10,000. The city will raise this over the next year to reflect the cost of connection. Residents who connect by December 31, 2019, will be locked in to the $10,000 charge.

Many properties have already paid all or part of the charge. Contact the city at 952.960.7900 to find out if your property can connect to city water and to see if any portion of the access charge has been assessed.
