Although traditionally a day people suspect a hoax, April 1 was the official day Mt. Lake’s brand new well started producing.

“People will have softer water,” said Kevin Krahn, water/wastewater superintendent.

“The custom computer programmer and electrical equipment are installed and it’s up and running.”

The wait was for the motor, pump and controls. This equipment wasn’t pre-manufactured since their specifications are determined after a well is drilled to see how much it produces.

Grand total for the project is $842,162. Only a small portion, $47,444, is funded by a 20-year, low-interest loan from the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority.
