The Blue Earth County Property & Environmental Resources Department is once again administering a well sealing cost-share program in 2021. This marks the 31st consecutive year that we have administered a well sealing program. This program assists property owners with the costs to have old, unused wells properly sealed by a licensed contractor. All private, unsealed wells which have been replaced prior to 1989 are eligible for this program. Some years there are other sources of well sealing funding available from other agencies like the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Blue Earth County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD). To find out more about the County eligibility requirements, the amount of County funding available, how to obtain a County cost-share application, or to find out about other possible sources of funding, please contact Tim Grant at 507-304-4251.
