The Minneapolis Public Works Water Treatment and Distribution Service supplies water for more than 500,000 people living in Minneapolis, Minnesota and several suburban cities. Established in 1867 as the Minneapolis Water Works, the water department today sources water solely from the Mississippi River to ensure that the area has enough water to sustain its growth.
