Welcome to the Official Website of Seeley Lake Water District
At Seeley Lake Water District, we are committed to providing safe, high quality water services to our community, while maintaining a standard of excellence in customer service and environmental conservation.
THE MAY BOARD MEETING HAS BEEN POSTPONED. THE NEXT BOARD MEETING WILL BE HELD ON JUNE 30, 2022 AT 5:30PM.
WATER METER REPLACEMENT PROJECT
We would like to inform our customers that in April we will restart replacing the water meters after a break during the winter. Replacing a water meter should take approximately 15-30 minutes, during which time we will need to turn the water off to your home. There will be no cost to the customer for this work. We will do everything we can to make this process as trouble-free as possible to all of our customers and ask for your patience during this time.
As with most equipment, water meters wear out over time and have to be replaced. Additionally, the equipment that reads the meters is failing and causing meter reading to be labor intensive and inefficient. Although the Water District has sufficient funds to replace the meters, we have applied to both the State of Montana and Missoula County for ARPA funding (these are COVID infrastructure Funds specifically for water & wastewater projects).
The district did not secure any ARPA funds in the first round of funding. An application has been submitted for the second round of funding and we should know shortly if the district was successful this time. Potentially these funds could reimburse the district for 50-100% of the cost of the new water meters and reading equipment. It would be phenomenal to have the cost of the water meter project partially or entirely paid for with grant funds; however, either way there will be no out of pocket cost to our customers.
Primarily the work to replace the water meters will be done between 8:00am and 4:00pm Monday through Friday. If your water meter is in a crawl sapce and has an access that needs to be cleared, or it is hard to reach, or it would be more convenient for you to make an appointment to have this work done, please call the office at 406 677 2559. Additionally, please call the office with any questions or concerns. Again, we appreciate your understanding during this this process and apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause.
