On rare occasions, customers may notice some discoloration of their water. The Public Works Department recommends that you run your water a few minutes until it clears up. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the City of Baxter Public Works Department at 454-5115.

No Water Main Emergency in Baxter

There has been much coverage by the media about problems with frozen water service lines across Minnesota, resulting from the extremely cold temperatures the winter.  Brainerd Public Utilities has reported over 150 cases of frozen underground water lines, prompting it to declare a “water main emergency” and ask residential customers to leave a cold water faucet running.

The City of Baxter is not under an emergency and is not requesting residents to run water at this time.
