Water hardness

The water treatment plant does not soften the water. The current water hardness is approximately 32 grains per gallon. Softeners should be set to leave 6 to 7 grains of hardness in the water. If you have questions or would like additional information call the water treatment plant staff at 763-315-8412 or 763-315-8410.

Basement water valves

Residents are responsible for the maintenance of indoor water shut-off valves. Residents should be careful when attempting to turn off water valves at the meter in the basement. If the meter valves are not working correctly call Utility Billing at 763-493-8185.

Sewer problems

If you have a sewer back-up, call 763-493-8007 during business hours. We will help determine if the back-up is our responsibility or if you will need to call a sewer maintenance company.

Water or sewer emergencies after 4:30 p.m. or on weekends call 763-493-8222.
