Consumer Confidence Reports

The City of St. Charles Water Department works hard to provide its residents with safe and reliable drinking water that meets federal and state water quality requirements. The City of St. Charles Water Department partners with the Minnesota Department of Health to test its drinking water for more than 100 contaminants on a regular basis. As a result, the annual Consumer Confidence Report is generated that outlines important information about the drinking water.  Residents can download a full copy of the report by clicking on the link below. Copies of the report are also available at City Hall Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
