Cleveland, MN


In early 2021 the Minnesota Department of Health advised the City of Cleveland that, upon recommendation of the US EPA, MDH is now testing for manganese in drinking water. Although manganese remains an uncontrolled and unregulated substance. The City of Cleveland received the results of those tests back in late April, 2021. It was determined that Cleveland's water supply at the wellheads, have levels of manganese greater than MDH recommended health guidelines. The City of Cleveland is working on both short and long-term plans to address this, even though MDH is not recommending action at this time.

Information about manganese, effects on health, levels in various food and drink, and other pertinent facts are being gathered from the Minnesota Department of Health, the US EPA, the National Institute of Health, and other sources and will be posted here.
