The City of Lakeville provides water to its residents from a groundwater source: 17 wells ranging from 460 to 864 feet deep. The wells draw water from the Prairie DuChien/Jordan aquifer and the Franconia-Ironton-Galesville formation.

Lakeville has five water towers and one ground storage tank that store a total of 8.85 million gallons of water.

The Lakeville Water Treatment Facility was built in 1998 and expanded in 2001 to serve the needs of residents and meet the demands of the City's significant development.

The City complies with rigorous state and federal standards to ensure that the water delivered to residents is both safe and good tasting. The primary water treatment processes, using chlorine and potassium permanganate, are expressly designed to oxidize and remove iron and manganese. Fluoride is added in accordance with the Minnesota Department of Health criteria to promote dental health.

 2015 water quality report

The hardness of water for the City of Lakeville is 18 grains per gallon. When setting up a water softener we suggest you set the grain amount at 14 grains per gallon. If water is over-softened, it may become corrosive.
