Also, for the record, an Order to Abate an open and free flowing well was issued to the
property owner/responsible parties on January 31, 2012 with a compliance date of
March 1, 20212. The owner requested an extension to comply with the orders on
February 23, 2012 which was granted. When compliance was not achieved, a letter
was sent to the owner by the Minnesota Department of Health on April 3, 2012 advising
that the unsealed well was in violation of state law. On April 9, 2012, the inspector
noted that the well was no longer leaking and the order to abate was now in
