Woodbury temporary water treatment plant opens up, lawn watering policy remains in effect

Woodbury announced Wednesday that its temporary water treatment plant is now in service. 

The city began building the plant after it had to remove seven of its 19 wells due to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

The city says bringing four of the seven wells will allow the city to meet increased demand through the summer. 

Woodbury warns residents of possible water restrictions as wells are taken out of service

While the plant helps the city with a high water demand, the city's lawn watering policy remains in effect. That policy can be read here

According to the city, temporary treatment plants usually take 18 to two years to construct. The city was able to complete this project in about five months.
