Own or Maintain a Larger Building?

The water may lack the residual chlorine that provides disinfection. Find out more below.

Water Meter Lawsuit
A settlement agreement has been approved by the Board of Water Commissioners in a class action lawsuit related to fixed fees charged in the past to single family homes with one-inch water meters.
The court has approved the settlement. Credits (for current Saint Paul Regional Water customers) or refunds (for former customers) are being done automatically.
