Wells Offline, Water Still Flowing

Wells Offline, Water Still Flowing

There will be no water shortage in Eau Claire, even with fewer wells.

The city’s Utilities Manager, Lane Berg, yesterday said Eau Claire’s nine remaining wells will provide more than enough water for the city. Eau Claire has taken 16 wells offline because of PFAS contamination. The water from those wells is being dumped. The state is working to figure out just where the PFAS chemicals in the water came from, but figure they came from the airport and the firefighter foam used there.
