ST. PAUL PARK — Residents gathered at an open house regarding water quality June 13. A year's worth of Department of Health testing showed perfluorochemical levels in a second of three city wells above health-based recommendations.

Representatives from the MDH, Pollution Control Agency and city of St. Paul Park gave a presentation and were available for questions.

With a second well offline, city officials are asking residents to conserve water and observe the odd/even watering restriction and only watering between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m.
