    The Public Works Department is working to ensure that essential services are not disrupted during the current mandated protocols. It is our goal to protect the safety of the public and our staff and we are following recommended practices. 

    Your water is on! We want you to know that the Water Treatment Plant is maintained to the highest standards and your water is safe, clean and is disinfected to meet all applicable standards and regulations. Our water supply is regularly tested for quality throughout the treatment and distribution system. Check out our annual Water Quality and Consumer Confidence Report, this report provides a full list of ingredients for your drinking water.

    We are recommending that utility payments be made online or by phone, visit our Payments and Utility Account Services page for online payment options or call (406) 657-8315. For your safety and that of our staff, the lobby at the Utilities Service Center is closed for the duration of the Governor’s order to Shelter at Home. Payments can be placed in a secured drop-box for utility payments located at either 2251 Belknap Ave, or at 3rd Ave N between 27th and 28th Streets. Scheduled meter replacements are being postponed until current orders are updated.

    We understand that the declared State of Emergency for the COVID-19 Coronavirus and related mandated actions may affect your ability to stay current on your bill, and we are ready to assist with expanded payment plan options. Give us a call to make any necessary arrangements at (406) 657-8315 if you have been impacted by these events.
