UPDATE: The Boil Water Notice is lifted. The test taken on Saturday had no bacteria present in the samples and the State has approved lifting the notice. If you have any questions, please call 406-595-3087.
As of October 31, Elk Grove is under a Boil Water Notice. Residents are asked to boil water for three minutes before drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, or otherwise consuming it.
Early in the morning of Saturday 10/31/2020, a Northwestern Energy power line was hit by a car, causing a power outage at the Elk Grove Booster Station. The power surge caused pumps that feed water to the distribution system to fail at 6:11 am. Our operator restored the pumps running on backup generator power and pressure was restored at 6:50am. As a precaution, we have increased the amount of chlorine added to your water. Bacteria tests are being taken throughout Elk Grove to ensure your water is safe to drink.
Tests have been submitted to the State lab. Results should be available by Monday. We will post information here and on the Elk Grove HOA website when results are available.
