County shares well-sealing costs

Property owners in Ramsey County can apply for financial assistance to seal unused wells.

Homes may still have unsealed wells in a basement, a basement well room or elsewhere on the property, and if these wells are not properly sealed, they can allow contaminants to seep into the water system.

Applicants will be reimbursed for up to half the well-sealing costs, up to $750 per well. The county will not reimburse homeowners retroactively for previous well sealing.
