                 2013 City of the Year4 Award by North Dakota Leauge of Cities

         2013 City of the Year

The City of West Fargo was awarded the 2013 City of the Year by the North Dakota League of Cities. The ND League of Cities cited West Fargo's rapid growth of its school system, industrial park, and subdivisions as some of the reasons for the award.

West Fargo, with an estimated population of 30,000, is one of the fastest growing communities in North Dakota with a growth rate of 72.9% between 2000 and 2010. We are proud of our student oriented school district, accessible park facilities, and a variety of housing options. All these features and more help to make the community of West Fargo an ideal city for your home. Boasting opportunities for both families and businesses, West Fargo combines all the benefits of a small town atmosphere but also remains competitive in the growing metropolitan area of Fargo/Moorhead. Welcome to the City on the Grow!

The City of West Fargo’s population has grown very quickly since the year 2000. Unfortunately, the aquifer that has supplied the City’s water cannot continue to meet the needs of our growing population, which is currently estimated at over 30,000 people.

The City of West Fargo looked into several options before deciding in 2015 to begin purchasing water from the City of Fargo in 2016 because it is the most economical option for the City and its residents. If the City of West Fargo had decided to build a new Water Treatment Plant, water bills were projected to increase by $9.29 per 1000 gallons to pay for the new infrastructure.
The City of Fargo plans to begin pumping water into West Fargo’s water distributions system starting in June 2016. Throughout the month of June, a final flush of the system will be completed before the new water supply is distributed throughout West Fargo.
West Fargo customers will continue to receive a utility bill from the City of West Fargo. The cost is expected to be $7.00 per 1,000 gallons.
There are no health concerns associated with the transition to Fargo’s water supply as it contains a similar concentration of chloramine (chlorine and ammonia) disinfectant residual as West Fargo’s water. The water from the Fargo Water Treatment Plant is safe to consume for the general public as well as vulnerable populations such as the elderly, infants, or those with chronic health problems. The City of Fargo’s most recent WaterQuality Report can be accessed here. The report indicates no violations of the EPA’s drinking water limits.
