Clear results for North St. Paul’s drinking water

This week, North St. Paul released its annual drinking water quality report, and the results were crystal clear: all tested contaminants were below state standards.
Public Works Director Scott Duddeck says that the good report is the results of regular water testing — every two weeks, in fact.
“We do water sampling every two weeks, at random throughout the city,” Duddeck explained. “We have five wells at five different locations and two water towers that store 800,000 gallons of water. And all we add to the water is fluoride, which is based on Department of Health laws.”

State’s lawyers disqualified in water pollution lawsuit against 3M

Dan Nordstrom knows a thing or two about the year 1913. He can tell you who the president was, what the average salary was and how many states there were.
He even knows what kind of car people drove a century ago. Why? Because he drives one himself.
Nordstrom, who lives in Plymouth, will be showing off his 100-year-old Ford Model T at this year’s Ramsey County Fair July 10-14. This year marks the fair’s centennial anniversary; the first one was held in White Bear Lake in 1913.
