SEWU IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE HAVE BEEN AWARDED A GRANT BY THE ND STATE WATER COMMISSION OF $11.79 MILLION FOR THE IN-SYSTEM EXPANSION !!!
This may be your last opportunity to receive rural water in your area from a project such as this. We are now asking for a good intention fee of $100 (applied to your connection fee) to have your site plotted on the new maps.
Please take note as new guidelines are in effect for the sign up. The sign up fee will increase to $1,500.00 after April 30, 2016 and $3,000.00 on August 1, 2016, so time is of the essence.
There are forms available at the office 701-242-7432 or 800-400-8888 or here in PDF format.
This study will end soon so if you want to be considered in this expansion, you need to get your form and fee in soon! If you know of friends or neighbors who would like to be considered, please let them know as "word of mouth" is the best notification of upcoming details!!

SE - East
BUSY, BUSY, BUSY! That's what is going on in the all three divisions of the Southeast Water Users District.
Service calls are always #1 on our list! If you are having any problems, please don't hesitate to give us a call so we can rectify the situation if it is something to do with our meter packages or water quality. Remember that the "meter package" is from shut-off valve to shut-off valve, inclusive. Anything before or after is up to the homeowner. Again, please call if you are having problems. We cannot fix anything if we don't know about it!
SE - Central
Same thing goes in the SE -Central division as Paul is working at new additions and mapping. This is always a long and tedious process, but the field operators are working with AE2S, our engineering firm, to make sure that new maps are made so that we can keep track of where the water lines are.
Paul is also busy helping co-operator Troy from the west division, doing some repair work on some pumps and cleaning of the tanks. It takes 2 operators to accomplish these things and Troy and Paul work together quite often.
SE - West
Same here. Troy is very busy with a number of new hook-ups and also trying to implement the new policies regarding Pasture Taps and the new guidelines on Shop Taps. He will be trying to replace as many of the old Pasture Tap meters that have become Shop Taps with new meter heads that will have a remote to read as a convenience for the consumer. This will take 2 - 3 months, so please bare with us !
It is always hard when change happens, but if you have a question or complaint, please call the office so we can help you!! It doesn't do any good to complain if you don't talk to the right people and we like to try to keep everyone informed with the right information, so don't hesitate - give us a call!
