Public Works

Water TowerThe Lindstrom Public Works Department is responsible for most maintenance duties within the City.


If a sewer backup occurs, call the City immediately at 651-257-0620 Monday – Thursday from 7:00am-4:30pm; Friday from 7:00a.m. – Noon. After hours or weekends, call Chisago County at 651-257-4100. They will dispatch a City Public Works crew to assess the situation.


Hydrant Flushing begins in May, and occurs again in September. You may experience low water pressure at this time, which should resume shortly after they are finished. If you experience a slight discoloration of the water, we suggest letting your water run for a short period of time to clear the pipes within your home. 

Thank you for your patience. This will help to keep your Hydrants in good working order.
