The interactive graphic below shows potable water use and associated costs. The dataset includes water sold by public suppliers (typically the municipality) to customers within city boundaries, as reported to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. It does not include water used by other permit holders within the city, such as residences with private wells or commercial, industrial, or agricultural uses with separate use permits. In order to represent consumption, these values do not include water lost to distribution leakage. Water costs represent the cost of energy used to treat and distribute potable water.
